A big park by the marina
Mar 2019
The park is by the marina with free parking and big open spaces. On a sunny day, it is nice to sit there and enjoy the view of the waters or just simply walk around. There are some cafe and boat tours available in the park.

The Mercado de Olhão is in the middle of the park. However, there is also an open market in the park itself. By the main road, you can find cafes, bars and restaurants.

Beautiful Olhao
Aug 2019 • Family
The main strip along the front of Olhao is beautiful. The town hasn’t yet fully embraced tourism meaning it’s not as mainstream as some other areas in the Algarve.

Along the front is filled with restaurants, cafes and bars the night scene is pretty lively especially when there is football on.

There are also plenty of green spaces and children’s play parks dotted along the front with a decent view out over the sea. Public toilets are available with a small tip for cleaning that should be provided to the person just inside the door.

The ferry to the beaches nearby go from here also, there is free parking at the port end of the strip in a large car park but spaces are always at a premium, again local Portuguese are on hand to guide you to a space but they will expect a small tip for their assistance.

Other than that there is street parking available and some paid parking areas. I would actually recommend using the Jumbo supermarket underground car park in town myself and walking out the front strip. Because it’s underground it’s out of the sun, there are always spaces available, it’s free on a Sunday and the walk isn’t too far but I guess could be with small children.

Olhao also offers some beautiful back streets and some decent wall art all of which would be shame if you didn’t take time to appreciate it.

The outdoor market is on Saturday mornings and open from 7am but get here early for parking! The covered indoor markets are on all the time and offer a decent range of meat, fruit and veg.

Olhao has so much to offer and I think is beautiful, well worth a visit!

Bats at night
May 2019 • Couples
Nice enough park to wander through with plenty of seating to take a breather and look out to sea. Walk through at night when the bats are flying around and there is always a market of sorts in the day time.

Fisherman's Memorial
Nov 2018 • Solo
Lovely palm-fringed gardens along the Olhao waterfront. Although the impression is of a yacht haven, this was once a traditional fishing village. At the centre of the Jardim Pescador, in traditional Portuguese tiles are a memorial to those lost at sea and a plea for protection to Nossa Senhora do Rosario.

Olhao's Beautiful Waterfront Park...
May 2018 • Couples
While visiting Olhao, Portugal, my wife and I took a walk along its real nice waterfront, Mercado, and main street. There were plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, and street vendors by the Mercado.

The Jardim Pescador Olhanense was a stunningly well maintained park right along the main street and was a welcome attraction when visiting Olhao....There were nicely landscaped walkways and gardens, a couple of statues/monuments, and plenty of shaded areas to get out of the sun for a few minutes.

The Jardim Pescador Olhanense was a welcome park along Olhao's inviting waterfront.
