About the neighbourhood
Olhão, a lively fishing port, still retains its original character with a strong Moorish influence. It is the place to be for people who love the real Portugal, with its history and culture, beautiful islands and beaches, nature and interesting hinterland. The 1.3 km long boulevard in Olhão is one of the finest in the Algarve with green parks and playgrounds. Striking are the famous red market halls with daily (except Sunday) fresh fish, vegetables and fruits. On Saturday there is a local product / gypsy market. There are many excellent cafes / coffee shops, shops, bars and restaurants. The choice of restaurants is great, and the very fresh fish, clams, squid, crabs and shrimp are excellent.
Getting around
There is ample public transport: local and regional buses and a train station at walking distance. Also several supermarkets and many restaurants and bars/cafes at walking distance.
