There are areas for soccer, volleyball and paddleball, as well as a playground for children.

 

The center of the village is like a small city. It has a police station, public health clinic, a 24-hour supermarket, a strip mall, car rentals, banks, post office and travel agencies. For those who want to enjoy themselves without stepping on the sand, there is a bingo hall in the summer.

 

Gastronomically, Canasvieiras offers steakhouses, pasta restaurants, traditional local seafood, international cuisine, snack bars, pastry shops and ice-cream parlors. During the summer there is also a McDonald's kiosk.
