Cabanas de Tavira, Eastern Algarve. Portugal
Cabanas de Tavira, (or as it is now known Conceicao de Tavira following the merger with its neighbouring parish in 2013) is a small fishing village on the Eastern Algarve. Or at least that’s how it began. The fishing boats still line the water front’s but there is a much more touristic feel to the area now and there has been substantially investment in Cabanas de Tavira for quite some years now.
With a beautiful promenade lined with traditional and more modern styled restaurants you really do get the feeling of “old meets new” here. Watching the sun set over the Ria Formosa is beautiful site and one of the reasons many have found themselves returning time and again to this area.
For those that enjoy relaxing on the beaches of the Algarve, then Cabanas is fortunate to host one of the very, very best. Ilha de Cabanas is a beautiful island beach, reachable only by water taxi and attracts visitors from all over Portugal in the summer months.
