Facts on Olhão: Situated on the southern coast of Portugal the Algarve and Olhão enjoy a warm climate all year round with sea water temperatures between 17⁰C to 23⁰C. The Village Marina is directly on the Ria Formosa lagoon with spectacular views out to sea so there’s no chance that someone can build in front of the resort and spoil the view! Olhão is the largest fishing port in the Algarve and is rightly famed for its sea food restaurants, cooking fish that has been caught fresh that morning. The town itself is two hundred metres from the Village Marina along the water front and there is a long, very pleasant, paved promenade with cool gardens (Jardim Pescador do Olhanense) to escape the heat of the sun. The town itself doesn’t have a beach, but regular ferries take day trippers to the other side of the lagoon to the islands where the beautifully clear water, with many species of fish, is perfect for diving and snorkelling. Olhão is definitely a city on the up as far as tourism is concerned, with the Ria Shopping centre with its 3 floors of shops and restaurants and cinema and if that is not enough there are numerous golf courses all a short drive away. Being so close to Faro means short transfer times so you are on holiday before you know it!

Airlift / Airways Frequency: There are frequent flights to and from all over mainland Europe which include the following airlines: TAP, EasyJet, British Airways, Ryan Air, Air Berlin, Thompson, TUIFly, Condor, Jet2, Monarch, Lufthansa.

Traditional Peak/Low Seasons: The traditional peak season for the Algarve is July and August during which you can expect near to 100% occupancy of your investment. The shoulder months of June and September also prove popular with foreign tourists looking for the sun and during the low season there are always visitors looking to play golf or just escape the harsher north European winter.

Things to see and Do: Activities available in the Algarve include the following: Activities Swimming
