Olhao is a traditional Portuguese city overlooking the Ria Formosa. Famous for its annual fish festival, usually held in August each year. Olhão is full of character and with its Moorish style houses, the city dates to 1378, where you would find only a handful of people and a small fishing settlement. How times change, Olhão is now the largest fishing port on the Algarve. On a Saturday morning why not take a short stroll to the marketplace where you will find local farmers selling their produce and the famous fish market.
Walking through the traditional calçada streets you will find a multitude of traditional Portuguese restaurants serving both traditional and international cuisine. Once at the Marina you can walk or perhaps even cycle along the waterfront, or simply relax in the gardens watching the boats and people going about their day. You could even take a water taxi or small boat to the idyllic nearby islands of Armona, Culatra or Deserta where you can relax and unwind on the tranquil white sandy beaches.
If you are looking for a central base whilst on your holiday this is the perfect place where you can explore both the East and West coast of Algarve, or why not take a trip to Spain and visit two countries in one trip as Olhao is not far from the border between Portugal and Spain.
There are water parks and the popular Zoomarine within driving distance from the apartment, whatever your reason for a trip to this lovely apartment and Town you will soon feel like you are at home.
