Holidays to Cabanas de Tavira
This former fishing village is home to just over 1000 residents. It became a tourist hotspot in 1997 and much of its activity lies along the beach with its bars and restaurants. It's a great place to go if you're looking for culture, with a 17th Century fortress and a small church among the traditional Portuguese houses. Nearby, Tavira is another cultural hotspot, with over 36 churches and some stunning Gothic architecture on display.
Praia de Cabanas
You can swim across to this sandy beach, located on the Ilha de Cabanas, but we'd suggest getting a water taxi instead.
Praia Cacela Velha
At low tide, walk through the canals to this beach, a long stretch of sand blending into the Rio Formosa Natural Park.
Situated at the southern tip of the Sagres Peninsular, this 15th century fort is a remarkable sight to see.
Museu de Portimao
Learn about the area's fishing industry as well as sardine canning which was once so vital to the Algarve's economy.
From the beaches of Praia dos Salgados and Santa Eulália to the Old Town, this city is well worth a visit.
