About the neighborhood
Cabanas de Tavira (Portuguese for Tarvira's huts) is a former fishing village on the east-southern coast of the Algarve, Portugal. With a little more than one thousand permanent residents, it has become a popular tourist destination in the summer because of its beautiful beach, Praia de Cabanas, located on an island just offshore (Ilha de Cabanas), which belongs to Ria Formosa Natural Park. The village has many local cafes and restaurants, several small supermarkets, a fresh fish and vegetable market and a variety of shops.
The Benamor golf course is less than 10 minutes drive from the apartment and there are a number of other excellent golf courses within 30 minutes drive. In Cabanas you can hire bicycles, practise kite surfing and enjoy some lovely walking in the local area.
