Park the car in the city of tavira or in Quatro-Aguas and take the ferry boat from there to the spot(ilha de tavira) it´s really easy to get there. The wave is very inconsistent, can get good occasionally, but with the very consistent and relativelly uncrowded West coast so closeby it is a waste of time to go to this spot... most of the times...
Very nice spot. Gave to us a lot of fun!
Very inconsistent, but when it breaks its a fun short wave. Its a beachbreak so it depends a lot on the quality of the sand banks... The take-off area is pretty small an VERY crowded. Respect the locals... Dont forget that you have to leave your car on the carpark which is a 20 minute ferry ride away...

Ilha de Cabanas - Hi,
Is it possible to surf in Ilha de Cabanas or just in Ilha de Tavira?

small but beautiful - I can't believe this hardly ever works. Nice place tro visit though. You can walk over the bridge from the nearby fishing village. We went when the SW swell was massive and it was only a foot.
