Where to sleep?
If you’re longing for beaches, sun-drenched breakfasts along small boulevards and lots of zen, then tiny village Cabanas is your place to stay in the Algarve! Rent one of the feels-like-home apartments we found at Boavista Rentals and prepare for an easy-going holiday. Or have a look around for a cute Airbnb.
Where to zen?
To start the day in a Zen way, you could go for an early walk along the beautiful beach which can be reached by using the lovely fisherman boats. You pay 50 cents and a charming old fisherman will sail you from the boulevard to the other side of the stream, where the beach is located.
To accomplish your relaxing beach day, you can head back to the boulevard and score yourself a tropical cocktail at the Quasi-bar. They have super friendly staff and they are more than willing to give you the best recommendations about the whole area. To get some lovely dinner, you better get a cap and head to Tavira…
Where to eat/drink?
Often we visited the cute streets of Tavira, a cosy (I could say picturesque, but that word gives me the chills but fair enough, it’s picturesque) town close by. Our culinary hearts jumped for joy about its amazing restos.
Aquasul is an arty restaurant that serves amazing Italian food that is complemented by some Portuguese flavors. All the ingredients are so fresh and they are obtained locally. In addition they have very friendly staff. Wanna go?! Don’t forget to make a reservation!
O patio is my personal fav. (It’s next to Aquasul, so yes…. go spend all of your dinner nights in this street and you will be a happy kiddo) This typical Portuguese restaurant has a very nice patio (what’s in the name eh?) I order the Cataplana de Marisco, every time I go there. It’s a stew filled with monkfish, crustaceans and shellfish and it is heaven on a plate. If you’re really lucky you’ll catch yourself a table on the street and some talented guitar players might stop by to provide you with a romantic serenade.
