Olhao

There is a local shop and café in Quelfes, approximately 1.5 km away and a wider variety of shops, cafés and restaurants in Moncarapacho just 8 minutes drive away. Larger supermarkets can be located 10 minutes drive away in Olhão.

A good selection of beaches can be reached within 10 to 15 minutes by car, including various deserted lagoons and beaches with facilities. The Islands of Culattra, Armona and Farol can be reached by ferry boat from Olhao, 5km away.

There are excellent golf courses within 10 to 25 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest is Colina Verde and further afield are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei. The more popular golf courses west of Faro can be reached within 30 minutes.

The main indusry of this bustling town, 15 km from Faro and 20 km from Tavira, is the catching and processing of fish.

Beside the river in the centre of Olhão are two large indoor markets with a delightful array of fresh produce, especially fish brought in from the port next door.

The warren of narrow streets and flat roofs lend a North African feel to the old town and the landscape.

Olhão harbor is protected by two islands with superb Atlantic facing beaches 'Ilha da Culatra' and 'Ilha da Armona', both reached by charming ferry rides from the dock near the market place.

The islands are between 10 and 20 minutes boat ride away from the mainland and house a tiny community of residents but mostly summer huts and holiday homes.There is a very popular seafood festival during august with live music and hundreds of different ways to eat shell fish!
