1 Bedroom Apartment in Colina Verde Moncarapacho
Olhão is a town of many faces. Around the corner from the dock there is also a long and very pleasant paved promenade. The promenade also offers cool gardens to escape the heat of the sun. If you are driving to Olhão there is plenty of parking along this water front road but do remember to get your pay and display ticket from one of the machines.
There are two market buildings side by side along the water front. The markets are a must visit for the fresh fish and sea food straight from the port. You will also find a large array of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables.
The markets are surrounded by cafes and a great place to sit and enjoy the view of the boats. You can also enjoy the beach ilhas of Armona and Culatra which is just a short distance off shore. Here you can enjoy a lovely afternoon walking along the water front and through the gardens. You can also sit outside a jazz cafe watching the boats and local people going about their day.
Olhão is definitely a city on the up as far as tourism is concerned. With its Ria Shopping centre of shops, restaurants and cinema is on the EN125 towards the town centre. Several companies offer a variety of boat trips, 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.
