Olhão is known for the fascinating sight of its old-quarter townscape of whitewashed houses with flat roof-terraces, displaying a Moorish influence on the town’s architecture. The fishing port of this town is one of the busiest on the Algarve, with the result that there is a fantastic variety of fish and other sea-life for sale daily in the town’s picturesque and lively market. While the town does not have a direct-access beach, there are several island-beaches that can be reached by public ferry.

For Golfers, the selection of golf courses on the Algarve is outstanding. Among this fine selection Tee Times Golf Agency recommends San Lorenzo, Pinheiros Altos, Quinta do Lago South, Quinta da Ria and many more.
