In 1734 began the tuna fishing with nets (armação), which led to the construction of the first huts to keep the fishing equipment and to be a shelter to the fishermen.
For 20 years the huts were only seasonal residence. Only in 1757/58 some fishermen built permanent homes.
Now Cabanas has 1181 permanent residents, a number that increases a lot in the summer with tourists.
The community is still dedicated to fishing, contributing to the local cuisine enrichment.
But the tourism is getting more importance year after year.
This website accepts bookings for the next year, should you wish to book in advance.
