Olhos D’Agua – Algarve

Olhos D’Agua – Algarve

Transfer time – 70 minutes

Olhos D’Agua is a wonderful little resort located just between Albufiera and Vilamoura, a true Portuguese fishing village which isn’t spoilt by tourism yet. The resort is a perfect location for a relaxing holiday where you can relax, wander through the cobbled streets and haggle with the local fishermen who sell their catch of the day on the local beaches.

The golden sands in this resort are perfect for families with children who want to play in the safe, clear waters. At low tide, you can see the warm springs which make this area lovely for paddling. There are numerous rock pools too, so don’t forget your snorkel. There is a small selection of water sports but you are not far from neighbouring Vilamoura where there is a much larger choice. If you are after a more secluded beach, wander along to Praia da Luisa, you won’t be disappointed, it is just stunning.

Olhos D’Agua is a family friendly resort or perfect for couples wanting to sample real Portugal. The nightlife is relaxed and laid back with most people enjoying the laid back bars and cafes after a wonderful meal in one of the restaurants. Fish lovers will love the choice of freshly caught fish and shell fish, lobster is popular here and very reasonably priced. The locals cater for all tastes and budgets and all the food is sourced locally and cooked to perfection.

For a fun family day out, we’d recommend a day at the Water Park or Zoo marine, a firm favourite for families, with slides and chutes or sea lion shows or dolphin acts, just a fun way to spend a day or two. The resort does boat trips out to sea where you can even see real dolphin and is a great way of seeing this beautiful coastline too.

Car hire is very reasonable, and the local bus service is very good, so there’s no reason to stay put, a 20 walk will take you into Vilamoura, but with access to local transport, who needs to walk!! The nightlife in Vilamoura and Albufiera is much busier, just in case you want to live it up a bit. However the stunning resort of Olhos D’Agua is just stunning and has something for everyone, no wonder it’s so popular with the British holiday makers. Just beautiful!!
