Cabanas Tavira Algarve

Cabanas de Tavira is a former fishing village situated around 7km east of Tavira town where the lagoons begin in the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve. Cabanas de Tavira derives its name from the fishing huts that were built in the early 18th century; literally “Huts of Tavira”. The village has a chilled out vibe and it is impossible to be anything other than relaxed in this charming location. With just 1000 permanent residents and clean, beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that visitors love this little piece of paradise on the Algarve. Today, there are low rise houses, bars, shops and restaurants facing on to the famous Ria Formosa Nature Park.

Cabanas de Tavira evolved around the tuna fishing industry which began in 1734. There was a need for places to store equipment and act as a base for the fishermen so the huts (cabanas) were constructed. These huts were only used during the tuna fishing season but around 1757, some of the fishermen decided to build permanent homes for themselves and their families.

The village still revolves around fishing and the catch of tuna, razor clams, regular clams and cockles are used in local gastronomy. If fresh sea food is your thing, there is no better place to eat. Tourism these days plays a big part in the economy of Tavira de Cabanas contributing to work for the residents. The village residents ensure that visitors are made most welcome and there is a variety of accommodation on offer to suit everyone. We are proud to offer some delightful properties for the visitor to rent for a week or two on our web site. In 1997 Tavira de Cabanas was granted village status from being just a parish and continues to be watched over by patron saint Nossa Senhora do Mar (Our Lady of the Sea).

The village of Tavira de Cabanas is a location rich in history and natural heritage. The fauna and flora of the area is remarkable and for nature lovers it is an opportunity to be at one with the natural habitat. For other visitors, the range of restaurants, accommodation and the amazing 7km long blue flag Cabana beach will provide plenty of ways to pass the time when not relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere.

For anyone seeking to really relax and unwind, then Tavira de Cabanas is the place to be!
