About the location
The little fishing village of Olhos d'Agua has an enviable location on the southern coast of Portugal. Set against the pale sandstone cliffs of the Algarve, the village has buckets of charm and an active waterfront humming with local fishermen. Main Street is home to dozens of bars and restaurants serving local cuisine, including, naturally, freshly netted fish. The lovely local beach is Praia d'Agua. It's a fairly small stretch of sand, but there's still plenty of space to throw down a towel, paddle in the shallows and explore the rock pools. The picturesque promenade invites a wander - it's fringed with palm trees and looks out across a sea dotted with colourful fishing boats. The town has a surprising buzz after dark, with Main Street's bars and restaurants packed out with locals and visitors.
