Very nice town, near one of the most beautiful beaches (Praia de Rocha) I've ever seen!
The coast of Portimao, a well known tourist resort, in the heart of Algrave, affords splendid views and is a true paradise.
Portimao has a memorable marine traditions as well, it is one of the most important ports in the region. Most of the inhabitants make a living from tourism and sardine fishing.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:very, very friendly people!!!!
