Islands · Parks · Fishing Charters & Tours
Algarve Region's largest fishing port, Olhao occupies a strategically important coastal area inhabited since prehistoric times. Dependent on the sea from its earliest days, the town developed into a major fishing center in the 17th century, when a massive fortress protected this stretch of the coastline and discouraged pirate attacks. Today, the town's tidy marina serves both commercial fishing craft and pleasure boats. Away from the water, Olhao remains a pleasant city of cobbled streets, cool gardens, and pavement cafes. Add the town's main church to your itinerary to see a simple yet elegant stone structure built over three centuries ago with contributions from local fishermen. Plan how to spend your time in Olhao and other destinations in Portugal using our Portugal trip itinerary builder.
