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!
