The Algarve region
Olhão is definitely a city on the up as far as tourism is concerned, with old and new apartments at the western end of the water front and the Ria Shopping centre with it's 3 floors of shops and restaurants and cinema on the EN125 towards the town centre.
There are also several companies offering a variety of boat trips to the ilhas, fishing trips and general coastal cruises as well as the regular ferries. Being close to Faro means short transfer times so you are on holiday before you know it!
Olhão itself have beaches on the islands, and as it is on the Ria Formosa lagoon system but the ferries for the islands run from the quayside near the gardens at the eastern end of the market halls. There are regular services throughout the year, although fewer in number during the winter.
Islands of Farol & Island of Culatra - one of the island beaches from Olhão.
Ilha da Culatra is surrounded by beautifully clear water, with many species of fish, so it is perfect for diving and snorkelling.
Ilha do Farol is not a separate ilha, but the area at the western end of Culatra where the lighthouse is ('Farol' meaning 'lighthouse' in Portuguese) and again offers visitors a large expanse of sand and warm water.
Ilha da Armona, the closest ilha to Olhão, has a few restaurants and holiday chalets and large expanses of golden sand for a very relaxing day at the beach!
The apartment have a Peaceful Location Yet Only Minutes From The Action. Beaches And Golf Easily Reached
Olhão is a major port and actually the largest fishing port in the Algarve. It is full of character with Moorish-style houses,an influence from the commercial links with Africa. Although Olhão only really became a town of note in the 19th century, it was first mentioned in 1378. At this time it would have been a very small fishing settlement of a handful of people, living in huts made of wood, reeds and straw on the beach. By 1679 it was important enough to need the building of the fortress of São Lorenço to defend it from pirates.
