Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Arrived 23rd October after being picked up by Big Eye tours.On arriving gat the property we were met by Olesya from Mars property and shown around the apartment. We were very impressed by the service as well as the apartment. It is clean and well equipped. Good information pack detailing the resort of Fuseta. Fabulous views from the balcony. The steps to the balcony were a little steep and maybe not suitable for people who are unsteady on their feet. Had a little problem with the hottubs but prompt service from Mars corrected the situation . Thoroughly enjoyed the break and would certainly return.

Great location but needs an update

  • 4 of 5

Overall, apartment was in a great spot and the manager very responsive and kind. Apartment was nice and clean with airy feeling and a terrific root top to enjoy the evening hours. I would, however, update some of the furnishing as the couch is terrible and the other furniture not very comfortable. That being said, you should enjoy Fuseta when there and not spend too much time inside.

Fuzeta is a small town in the Ria Formosa in the eastern Algarve.

The famous working fishing boats leave from one end of the key and the passenger ferry and other small boats leave from the other side.

Fuzeta was originally a collection of small huts kept to store tools for fishing boats and now has developed and increased in population but is still very traditional and untouristic.

The town which is located on the coast is known for it's quaint cubed houses with their terraces and interesting chimneys and is a trademark of this part of the Algarve.

Fuzeta has the added bonus of two beaches. The first is a small calm beach on the lagoon in the town itself and is literally only a 12 minute stroll . It is busy in August but the rest of the year very calm. When the tide is in it is great to swim and when the tide is out, you are reduced to paddling and exploring the shore. Families with younger children will love it being wave free and very safe.

The ocean beach is just across the lagoon on the Island of Armona and is easily reached by a short, cheap and frequent ferry ride. The Ocean beach extends for miles so those seeking more peace and privacy can walk 10 minutes to have the beach almost to themselves!

The square as you walk into Fuzeta has many cafes selling tempting cakes and freshly cooked bread. There is a pizza bar, many different restaurants for meat, fish and chicken or try one of the traditional Portuguese dishes in the cafes along the waterfront. Smell the delicious chickens roasting on the BBQs on almost every street corner.

Fuzeta has a street market on Thursdays and a flea market on the first Sunday of the month.

For some strange reason Fuzeta has two train stations. The single line runs along the coast and stops in most of the towns so if you are looking to visit the many charming and historical towns then it is very cheap and easy. Why not take the train to Villa Real San Antonio on the Spanish border or one of the popular towns on the west side, all the way to Lagos.

There is a newly renovated produce market situated on the quay which is open every morning,except Sundays, where you can buy all your fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit. On Saturday morning the market is surrounded outside by many smaller stall offering further local produce.

Also for all your other groceries, there is a large supermarket in Fuzeta that is open 7 days a week.

Having explored the cobbled back streets and through the houses you will come across all amenities from the bank to the post office, many little supermarkets, chemists,bakery, newsagents, tourist shops and cash point.

Every July there is a festival, a ceremony acting as a blessing for the town's fishermen for the coming year. Many boats participate and are decorated with flags and flowers all sounding their horns or hooters. The whole village is out in force and is a sight to see!

There are play parks and an artificial football pitch, an area where the locals play boules and at night in the peak of the summer the whole place is buzzing with families socialising and live bands playing.


Pronounced 'ol-ee-ow', Olhão is a busy modern town with a gem of a waterfront. Its fishing port is the most important in the eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest. Olhao recently opened a brand new shopping complex (Ria shopping) including 80 shops, a large supermarket, restaurants/bars and cinema. There is also kart racing in the underground car park here.

Olhao also has a new Auditorium.

Olhao also has many shops, restaurants and an entire summer festival devoted to sea food. Ameijoas - the king of clams - is both grown and eaten in abundance and is a 'must-try' entreé, as are conquilas. Olhão is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and very un-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the moorish-looking old town to the waterfront with its markets (fruit, veg, meat, deli as well as fish), its cafe's, parks and sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons. From the pier, you can take boats to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol - all great day trips. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhão. Its worth a visit to see: the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa), the bird life, and the chance to spot the very rare symbol of the park, the Purple Galinule.

The Sea Food festival takes place in August and half of the water front gardens are closed off and turned into a massive gastronomic and entertainment delight. The sea food is plentiful and excellent, the entertainment is top class and the organisation great. Its a hugely popular event and deservedly so. Don´t miss it if you are here at the time.

Olhão highlights:

Sea food, sampled in any of the restaurants or bought to cook at home.

A coffee, a beer, a glass of wine in one of the market cafes looking over the lagoon.

Sea food festival in August - brilliant !
