Olhos de Agua - Things to do!

I am travelling with a group of friends who will be chilling by the swimming pool at the Oceanus Hotel the bulk of the holiday. This is not my style at all and I am looking for things to do in Olhos de Agus and the surrounds, but I have no access to a car and my driving license ran out a while ago so can't rent one.

What is available to do in Olhos de Agua which can be reached on foot?

Are there any boat trips or tours starting from here? Are there any walking routes that are recommended? Are there any local places of interest to visit?

Any feedback would be really helpful!

Thanks for the suggestion.

Do the trips depart from Olhos de Agua? Does the ticket shop have a website I can peruse before I go? :)

Tickets shops don't have websites, neither do most of the excursion and trip companies. It's a question of seeing what's available and at what cost while you are here. Yesterday I saw day trips to Lisbon (very early start) being advertised for 20 Euros. There are a few little boats operating short trips off the beach at Olhos D'Agua in summer but for anything more substantial you would have to go to either Albufeira Marina or Vilamoura Marina, both of which are 30 minutes or more by bus from Olhos D'Agua or 10 Euros (Albufeira) or 15 Euros (Vilamoura)by taxi.

Thanks Cubsur for the info. I've looked into a boat trip from Albufeira as suggested by FTHW and the bus travel there as I think that will be our best bet!

I need to plan in advance so it will be better to go to the larger town to look at things.

I wondered does anyone know if there are any safe walking routes around the coast starting from Olhas de Agua? I can see from google maps some nice cliff side paths and stuff, but I saw in an earlier post the cliffs there are not so safe? Any ideas?

There's erosion. Just make sure you stay well away from the edges.

On the first sunday of the month there's a market in Olhos d'agua.

Here's some additional info about Albufeira: http://www.albufeirauncovered.com/events.aspx

For Vilamoura: http://www.vilamourauncovered.com/events.aspx

and adjacent Quarteira: http://www.quarteirauncovered.com/events.aspx

furthermore have a look at the website of the Algarve tourist info:

www.visitalgarve.pt

Under 'downloads' you will find a monthly program which covers the entire Algarve.

For public busses: http://www.algarvebus.info/

Enjoy your trip!
