Cabanas is a fishing village catering for a wide variety of outdoor interests - tennis, fishing, cycling, bird watching, walking, kite surfing and water sports. The train station is a 12 minute walk away. It goes to Faro (and beyond) in the west and the Portuguese side of the Spanish border in the east. A Portuguese dongle, for wifi, is available in the apartment. Please request use of this before your stay. The hire is free but the access is via a pay-as-you-go service in euros. 10€ of credit will last over a week of normal usage and supports up to 4 devices. For the 2010 season the council radically upgraded the waterfront with an elevated wooden walkway the entire length of the village and new palm trees.More

Thank you. I will speak to our agents about insufficient bedlinen for you. We intend to upgrade the wifi when we are next there this year but they need our passports and signature so it cannot be done remotely. Regards.
