The beach in Olhos de Agua is approx an 8 min walk and is great for the kids as at low tide there is fun to be had in the rock pools. You can sit in the beachfront cafes and enjoy the scenery or watch the local fishermen bring in their catch which is served up fresh in the local restaurants.
There is plenty to do in the Algarve and Olhos de Agua is ideally located between Albufeira & Vilamoura both served by a local bus or a cheap taxi ride away.
Vilamoura is worth a day out as it has a great Marina with many restaurants and bars on the decking including Figo's bar for the football fans. You may even be lucky and spot a few celebrities such as Ronaldo who is a regular visitor to the area. There's two fantastic beaches plus Roma Crazy Golf Park for the kids (several top class golf courses for the pro's) and water sports such as jet ski, pedaloes, banana boat and paragliding among others. There's also a McDonalds and a Casino with live shows for a special holiday treat.
Albufeira is the main tourist resort in the Algarve and again hosts two great beaches . The Oura area in well known for its nightlife with The Strip being the main attraction, however in the Old Town you can still see the original fishermen's houses, churches and cobbled streets and enjoy the atmosphere of the Square with its market stalls, bars, restaurants and street entertainment in high season.
Local attractions include Zoomarine Sealife Park which is a great value day out as once inside most attractions are free. You can watch the dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows in between visiting the aquarium with sharks, the Cinema4D attractions, and amusements. There's also 2 swimming pools allowing you to cool off and in high season a high diving show. You can also pay extra to interact and swim with the dolphins.
The nearby Aquashow Water & Theme Park is becoming the nº 1 attraction in the Algarve due to its thrilling new rides. Not only does it have water slides, a wave pool, younger children's play pool area, parrot & reptile show but great new rides for children of all ages, so there's literally something for everyone.
Just down the road in Sta Eulalia you can also go Tree Top walking or paintballing. As it's set in Pine Trees the area is shaded and is open all year round. For those seeking thrills there is also a Go karting circuit in Almancil it's approx 20 mins away.

The Algarve region
The Algarve region
The Algarve has long been a favored destination for holidays. It is full of ancient history and heritage. Still standing today are buildings and walls dating back to the Roman times. Many museums and guided tours immerse you in the culture of this proud place offering an in-depth insight into the evolution of this beautiful region.
The Algarve has a fantastic all-year round climate and can boast more sunshine hours than California!. You can often see temperatures hit the mid 30's, thanks to the sea breezes it's always a pleasant heat.
With over 100 miles of dramatic cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers a dramatic coastline, and beautiful clear seas to swim, sail, surf in or simply watch the boats sailing by. There is something for everyone, whether you're after a relaxing day, water sports or simply viewing the many tourist attractions.
All types of holiday activities can be enjoyed including water sports, horse riding, fishing, deep –sea fishing, go-karting and hill walking. For those who enjoy sightseeing there are many places of interest including museums in Faro-maritime museum, boats and seafaring displays, while children will love the science museum with its interactive displays, rock pool and flight simulator.
Olhos d'agua has been described as "a perfect pocket of real Portugal."
This village is not tacky or trampled over by tourists. It sits comfortably in between (and very close to) Albufeira & Villamoura. Olhos d'Agua is cheaper to eat out and drink in than the two big Algarve tourist destinations - Albufeira & Villamoura.
This apartment is about 5 minutes on foot from Olhos d' Agua beach and is within a couple of minutes walking distance to all facilities like restaurants, shops, supermarkets, bars, pharmacies and banks.
The Olhos d'Agua beach is beautiful and is a short walk away. For a change of scene, try the long sandy beach of Praia de Falesia nearby, which stretches all the way to Vilamoura. Back at Olhos d'agua, the hilly, cobbled streets of the town can get busy in high season. But either side of July and August, this is a quiet place, where locals queue shoulder to shoulder with the holidaymaker to buy fresh fish and vegetables at the seafront early in the morning. If you prefer to stock up at the supermarket, then there are several to choose from, as well as a large shopping mall nearby.
For those who just want golf, golf, golf there is easy access to numerous spectacular golf courses. The apartment is approximately 2 km from Balaia Golf Course and 3 km to Sheraton Pine Cliffs, both located in Albufeira. The Vilamoura course is a 10-15min drive away.
If you like to have a drink with a bit of atmosphere there are bars and taverns with live music - not so close ,or open late, that it will keep you up all night though!!
For those that would like to go to the waterparks, like Aquashow, or the dolphin & seal shows at Zoomarine we can direct you straight to a local agency who can arrange all this for you.
The restaurants, some of which sit on the cliff face overlooking the golden sandy beaches, are friendly, relaxed and very reasonably priced. Seafood is a speciality, but all tastes are catered for. If you just fancy a drink or a quick bite with excellent kids meals, then some of the very tasteful bars near the seafront are perfect.
At a short driving distance (15-20mins) you will find the Algarve Shopping Centre with its wide range of shops, a hypermarket, 9 cinema screens (films in English), ten-pin bowling and fast food like McDonalds, Pizza Hut and KFC.
