By Boat to Tavira and Santa Luzia

Slide calmly over the lagoon, taking in its islands and marshes, the birds and fishing boats, the anchored yachts and all the different places.  On a boat tour from Cabanas to Tavira or Santa Luzia, you’ll see plenty of nature and catch a glance of the constantly changing Ria Formosa ecosystem.

We pass by Quatro Águas, where the lagoon intersects with the sea and the Gilão River, facing a former tuna fishing village with its own observation tower. We then take a break for a short visit to the beautiful historical town of Tavira before returning to Cabanas.

Depending on the tides, the trip may be extended as far as Sta. Luzia, known as the octopus capital, allowing for a bathe in the sea on the Island of Tavira or lunch to savour all the delicacies of the Ria Formosa lagoon.

Boat trip, 2 hours, from Cabanas to Tavira (from €20 per person) or Santa Luzia (€30 per person).
