The Algarve’s biggest fishing port, Olhao is an idyllic pick, with lots to see and do. Pretty gardens run alongside the promenade, while there are avenues and market halls to browse once you’ve had your fill of green-filled parks. Don’t miss the fresh fish dishes – they’re big on shellfish and seafood.
Make a splash
Sure, you’ve got great beaches here, so making waves is easy. But the wowing natural park of Ria Formosa is the main draw. A superb base of adventure beyond the village, this dazzling haven of dense greenery and unblemished scenery sees lush lagoons meet with rich forests.
