Olhao in early November

We are thinking of taking a trip to Olhao in early November - will everything still be open and will it be busy. We went to Vilamoura early January and it was very quiet. Are there plenty of bars near the Real Marina Hotel and will the ferry be operating?

Olhao is a working town and everything is always open. Vilamoura is a purpose built resort with very little population. From the Real Marina hotel you can walk to the left and you'll find bars and restaurants along the road. The ferry operates all year around. http://www.olhao.web.pt/horariobarcos.htm

As a 'footiefan' your trip might enable you to see a game at Olhao's ground - they (Olhanense) are in the second tier of Portuguese football - or just up the road at Farense (Faro) who are also in the second tier.

For fixures see www.ligaportugal.pt most games are on Sunday afternoons and admission in the 2nd tier last season was just 10 Euros.

Check fixtures a week or so beforehand. As with the UK it's TV that decides when matches are played. Every once in a while a second league match is played on a Saturday or Sunday morning for live broadcast.

(Heaven knows why. Crowds in that League averaged 750 or so last season. You won't have any trouble getting in. Yes, not a mis-type, 750.)
