Situated in the Eastern Algarve, this Portuguese town is especially famous for its seafood and the fishermen’s port! If you love some fresh fish, you will be in heaven here! From Olhão, you can go on beautiful boat tours in Ria Formosa, a Nature Reserve with unique flora and fauna! If you go on a boat tour in Ria Formosa, you will surely see some birds and fish you won’t find anywhere else!
Olhão doesn’t have any beaches right off the coast, but there are beautiful little islands around the town, so be sure to go on a boat tour in Olhão to explore some of them, like Ilha do Farol or Ilha da Armona.
