If you are driving to Cabanas, try to park on the easterly side of the town, so you
don’t have so far to walk to the aqua taxis. Having said that, if you do find yourself
on the western side of Cabanas, it is a nice walk along the promenade and you can
take note of all the cafes lining the promenade for that nice cool drink after your
return from cabanas beach...
To get to Cabanas beach, there is a small stretch of water that you need to cross,
and the aqua taxis will do that for you. Cheaply, (less than a Euro), and quickly,
(less than 2 minutes). There are two places to do this... A boat launching ramp and
a little further along is a small pier. In peak season the taxis run all day, and
at other times there should be a sign stating when they are running.
After you have made the short crossing to Cabanas beach, there are sun umbrellas
and beds for hire, or if you want to be in your own space, you can walk left or right
along the beautiful sandy beach. Cabanas is another example of the many beautiful
beaches in Portugal, so wherever you are holidaying in the Algarve, Cabanas beach
is well worth a visit...
Enjoy Cabanas Beach !
