Setting off from Vila Real de Santo António, 20 km from Golden Club Cabanas, a fine river boat trip will take you up the Guadiana, along the border between Spain and Portugal.
If you go by car, explore the hidden charms of the riverside. Make time for a drink on the terraces to enjoy this superb landscape, with yachts moored between the greenery of the banks. In the small taverns, try the eel stew and the roast mutton.
You can also visit the salt pans of the Sapal de Castro Marim Nature Reserve, with its aquatic bird watching observatories near the river, close to the town and castle of Castro Marim.
