Visiting Olhao

Hi. I'm visiting Olhao for a week towards the end of May 2013 and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for meals out/things to do/places to go. I've seen the previous post but since it's several years old I thought I'd ask the question again in case anything has changed! Many thanks,

Have you seen this website:


Olhao is located on the Ria Formosa laguna. You could take the ferry to the several islands.

The timetable: http://www.olhao.web.pt/horariobarcos.htm

From Olhao you can visit Faro (West) and Tavira (East).



If you travel by public transportation, here's a link for the busses: http://www.eva-bus.com/novo/index.php?lang=uk

And finally the website of the Algarve Tourist information. Under 'downloads' you can find a monthly updated program:

Trains between Olhão, Tavira and Faro are quicker and cheaper than the bus, but not as frequent, especially at weekends.



Down at the waterfront in Olhão, near the old fishmarket,you will find a lot of cafés and restaurants.
