Sun & Fun in Cabanas de Tavira – 8 Days

This active family trip is based in the charming resort of Cabanas de Tavira, in the East Algarve, a few miles from Tavira.

Tavira is an ancient Moorish town that has retained its unique character and heritage. Arguably the Algarve’s prettiest town, exudes an authentic Portuguese charm.

The diverse Algarve landscape is a playground for adventurers. Over the course of the week you will enjoy some unforgettable experiences including a jeep and boat safari, a kayak trip, cycling along secular saltpans, a boat tour in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, walks between hills and valleys with wide rewarding views, fields of orange, fig and almond trees, and free time to enjoy the Tavira Island, one of the 10 World's best beaches to travel with children, as elected by Lonely Planet.

You’ll have the time of your life with your kids with this mix set of fun activities, but also time to relax and explore the lovely town and the famous beaches of the region!



Introductory walk to Cabanas to present the Resort and the local attractions.


Walking from Cabanas to Cacela Velha on the Natural Reserve

An easy walk, close to the coast, starting in the beautiful old village of Cacela Velha, following tracks and quiet lanes to the picturesque old fishing village of Cabanas where fishermen still continue their craft, mixing harmoniously with the visitors crossing to the island and the golden beaches.

We continue back to Cabanas de Tavira, through the saltpans where we may see an abundance of wild life along with the traditional craft of salt extraction.


The Ria Formosa Natural Reserve - Boat tour & Kayak trip 

A day dedicated to explore the treasures of the Ria Formosa. During the morning we will take an exciting boat tour in this true sanctuary of nature and a privileged location to observe birds. The Natural Park is visited annually by about 30 thousand birds from different species! There is still a small traditional fishing fleet and during this tour we will get to see some of the old fishing boats with their traditional colours and fishing artefacts.

In the afternoon let’s paddle through the Algarve's famed blue waters in a kayak! A safe, comfortable, and easy to use kayak is the perfect way for you to explore the waters of the Ria Formosa.

Lots of fun!

A easy route, running along the coast and the Ria Formosa on the coastal ecovia. Nature and wildlife to enjoy.
