  • Address: Olhao, Portugal
The Algarve’s biggest fishing port is a lively place to be in the morning, when a busy fish market takes over the seafront, and fittingly, Olhao is full of quality fish and seafood restaurants, as well as hosting a renowned Shellfish Festival each August. 

The small town is more than just a fishing outpost though, and with its quiet resorts, majestic sand dunes and easy access to the region’s best beaches, it’s fast becoming a worthy alternative to nearby Faro. Olhao is also the gateway to the Ria Formosa Natural Park, an expanse of islands, lagoons, salt pans and wetlands, where visitors can navigate the maze of canals, spot an array of birds and wildlife, watch the salt harvest and visit the breeding kennels of the native Portuguese Water Dog.

Practical Info

Olhao is located 9km east of Faro in East Algarve.
