Lovely beach, reached by boat. Didn't like the walkway to beach, but that's just me. Everyone else loved it.

We visited the Cabanas beach whilst staying in the area. The beach was beautiful, you could see for miles. You can catch a boat from Cabanas. There are amenities (toilets and showers) and a little cafe (which was very expensive and not great). The beach...More

First time here, not far from where we are staying. A short boat ride away for 1.50 return each. Perfect sunny day, nice and quiet. Parasol and deck chairs for hire for a good price. A must visit for a peaceful time away.

This is our favourite beach in the Tavira area. Access is via a small ferry from the Cabanas quay - €1.50 return and you buy tickets on board. It’s rare to have to wait more than a few minutes as the boats go back and...More

Was so beautiful with a wild surf, I did not swim out as the surf was rough but others did more skilled in accommodating the waves. You can rent loungers under umbrellas to relax and enjoy.

Unspoilt, uncrowded with good facilities, justifying blue flag. Access is fun and very frequent (every 5 to 10 minutes) water taxis. 3-4 minute trip for a couple of eros return.
