Olhos de Agua is a delightful Portuguese fishing village that is situated in the heart of the central Algarve and is the ideal destination for visitors who are wishing for a calm and relaxed holiday. The little town is positioned on a coastline of small sandy coves, where fishing boats are still pulled up onto the sands and old fishermen tend their nets in huts that line the beach front.
If glorious weather, a sociable ambience and great value are key aspects for your holiday and you are wanting a low-key destination then Olhos de Agua is the location for you.
Highlights of Olhos de Agua
The beautiful Praia da Falésia beach, with its golden sands, clear waters and distinctive cliffs, is regarded as one of the finest beaches of the central Algarve.
The varied selection of restaurants in Olhos de Agua, covering all international cuisines, tastes and styles, which are exceptional value for money, especially when compared to the major resort towns close by.
Embracing the Portuguese unhurried mentality and café culture, with long relaxed days in the open-air cafes and bars socialising with new friends.
Olhos de Agua is just the right distance from Albufeira
One of the main appeals of Olhos de Agua is having easy access to all of the facilities and services of a buzzing and hectic resort town (Albufeira), without actually being in it. It is difficult to comprehend that the peaceful ambience of Olhos de Agua is less than 4km from the riotous and hedonistic bars and clubs of The Strip in Albufeira, which is a favourite for Stag and Hen do’s. Albufeira also has extensive shopping, with multiple supermarkets and the largest shopping centre in the Algarve, therefore a holiday to Olhos de Agua does not need to compromise on the comforts of home.
Olhos de Agua for families
Olhos de Agua is a great destination for families with young children as it is a very calm destination but provides all of the services found back at home. Children will be welcomed in all cafes and restaurant while the Portuguese as a nation believe in the importance of the family and are very supportive and accommodating. Olhos de Agua is close to all of the major waterpark/themeparks of the Algarve and the beaches are amazing, so it could be a good holiday destination if you wish to be away from the craziness of Albufeira.
