Olhão

Municipality

The islands and the long stretches of beach that are an ideal spot for swimming and sunbathing;

The tranquil waters of the Ria Formosa, a paradise for nature lovers; and in the background, the countryside dotted with white houses: these are the attractions of Olhão and its municipality, a great place for a holiday full of sun, life and a whole host of charms.

Olhão

Olhão

The fishermen’s quarter of old Olhão is a warren of narrow, twisting streets where it is easy to become disoriented, a succession of square-sided white houses whose windows and parapets are edged with bands of grey and blue. Close by are moored the brightly coloured boats after their return from work at sea. The morning bustle of the market by the water’s edge and the outdoor terraces where you can while away the time create a fascinating kaleidoscope of sensations for people strolling through the city, something not easily forgotten.
