Olhao, Eastern Algarve

One of the more historic towns of the Algarve. A relatively new addition to the inhabited areas of the Coast line, only coming into existence in the 17th century, Olhao was, and still is founded on the fishing industry. It was elevated to “town” status in 1808 after 17 local fishermen managed to navigate the Atlantic Ocean in their day to day fishing boat, named “Bom Sucesso”. With their purpose being to announce to the then exiled Portuguese King, Dom Joao IV that the French had been defeated and had left the Portuguese shores, allowing him to return.

The fishing industry has managed to prevail here in this larger working town. Home to around 30,000 inhabitants it is certainly one of the more sought after areas for locals. The huge fish market that can be seen along the promenade continues to supply a huge percentage of the most exclusive restaurants along the Algarve. So it goes without saying that if you are a fan of sea food, you can no find many better places than Olhao.

Currently there are ambitious plans under way to construct an expansion to an already functioning marina, which has sparked investment plans for new commercial centres and some huge name department stores.

With some much on offer in Olhao for all, and only a few kilometres from Faro airport, there is always an atmosphere of exploration and excitement here. Bordering the Ria Formosa, there is amble opportunity to catch a glimpse of the wild life here as you savour the local cuisine.
