About this location

The Algarve region

Olhao is situated in the heart of the estuarine Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, an intricate landscape of lagoons, canals, salt pans and sand banks that are separated from the Atlantic by a series of barrier islands that stretch from Faro to the village of Cacela Velha, near Tavira. A sanctuary for plant and wildlife, the estuary's fertile wetlands are a breeding ground for numerous species of birds, fish and shellfish and a delight to explore. Boats departing from Olhão's harbour and marina provide exploratory trips around the maze of canals and salt pans, while the park's Environmental Education Centre in Marim organises walking itineraries that provide in-depth information on the area's plant and wildlife, visits to the breeding kennels of the Portuguese water dog and detailed explanations of the salt harvesting process.

Such is the beauty of the Ria Formosa that nothing quite prepares you for what lies ahead on the barrier islands of Culatra and Armona. When you set foot on Culatra's jetty, the boardwalks leading away from the fishermen's settlements take you over dunes and lagoons to beaches that are so long that they disappear into the heat haze of the horizon. Gone are the loud motorised jet skis, the rows of sun loungers and the cries of ice cream vendors of mainland beaches and in their place lie deserted expanses of shimmering white sand dunes and the glistening ocean, disturbed only by the occasional cry of a seagull. Neighbouring Armona island is equally beautiful. There is a fishermen's village surrounding the beach on its western tip and a campsite providing water sports facilities but if you walk eastwards towards Fuseta, your reward will be a seemingly endless beach where you can enjoy blissful moments of uninterrupted solitude and peace.

The market halls are surrounded by pavement cafes and it's a great place to sit and enjoy the view of the boats moored along the water front in Olhão Marina and the sand spit beach ilhas of Armona and Culatra.
