"Olhao." Olhao Tip by cachaseiro
Olhao, Algarve: 4 reviews and 6 photos
Olhao is the fishing town of the Algarve.
This is the place where you have the big commercial fishing fleet of The Algarve and where you have the biggest fishing market.
The town also has a few fish factories and that means that it is a blue collar town with many working class areas too.
It´s situated by the sea, but there is also an island right off the coast that is popular with both visitors and locals when heading to the beach.
The center of town has a very north african feel to it as it is very moorish in it´s building style.
This is not a big tourist town at all and it´s a good place to catch a glimpse of what the Algave is like when people don´t live off tourism.
