Beach on the Island of Cabanas

  • Clients should bring their own beach towels.
  • The boat to the beach is free and exclusive to our guests. Boat timetables are available in the reception in accordance with the weather and the season of the year.
  • After crossing the lagoon by boat, there is a lovely walk to the beach – 200 to 400 metres, depending on the tide. Occasionally, at high tide, you may need to walk a very short distance with water below your knees – easy, refreshing and fun.
  • Due to Ria Formosa Nature Reserve restrictions, there are no bar or sanitation facilities on the beach. Should you prefer, you may catch a (paid) boat from the other side of Cabanas village to enjoy a beach with a bar and restrooms.
