Villas in Olhos d'Agua

Holiday with us in Olhos d'Agua

James Villa Holidays have 2 villas in Olhos d'Agua

The popular resort of Olhos d’Agua was traditionally a fishing village where boats would pull up and fishermen mend their nets, and today the cobbled streets are lined with a superb selection of restaurants serving international cuisine and, of course, many fish specialities. Evenings are laid back in Olhos d’Agua, so those looking for something a bit livelier can head to Albufeira which is only a few kilometres away. The freshwater springs “Eyes of Water” which give the resort its name can be viewed among the rocks at low tide, while there are plenty of other activities available on the beach to keep you occupied, including snorkelling among the nearby coves.

Out and about

Out and About in Olhos d'Agua


Excursions and Places of interest

Cruises

Boat trips and dolphin watching
Don’t miss a chance to explore the Algarve’s stunning coastline from the water at least once during your stay. Spotting a pod of dolphins is a magical experience and the 2 hr 30 min dolphin searching boat trips operating from nearby Albufeira Marina or Quarteira can also include a visit to the area’s dramatic caves, inaccessible by land, with a refreshing swim stop en route. For more energetic explorers, there are also guided kayaking trips to the caves.

Attraction parks

Zoomarine
Cleverly combining education with heaps of fun, Zoomarine is both an animal conservation centre and family theme park located at Guia, only half an hour’s drive from Olhos d’Agua. The park introduces visitors to exotic habitats and an array of sea and land animals from tropical birds and birds of prey to dolphins, seals and sharks, with shows and presentations throughout the day. Book in advance for a chance to interact with dolphins in person in the unique Dolphin Emotions experience. Besides its wonderful animal encounters, the park provides hours of entertainment with its own waterslides, wave pool and river rafting as well as fun fair rides and a 4D cinema. Open daily from March to October with its own transport service from most of the Algarve resorts.

Water Parks

Aquashow
One of several great waterparks along the Algarve, Aquashow is part of a larger theme park complex about 20 minutes’ drive from Olhos d’Agua. A memorable day out for all the family, the park boasts the largest wave pool in Portugal, water slides of all shapes and sizes and several exhilarating rides to delight even the most demanding of thrill-seekers. There’s a huge shallow pool providing lots of fun for little ones and you can round off your day with a gentle float down the Lazy River on inflatable tubes. Aquashow is open daily during the summer months.

Other Places of interest

Olhos d’Agua springs
The lovely beach at Olhos d’Agua, or ‘Eyes of Water’ is fringed with gorgeous sandstone cliffs and at low tide it’s fun to potter around the little pools between the exposed rocks. This is also where you may spot the bubbling freshwater springs that give the resort its name.

Vilamoura Marina
Only 15 minutes’ away is the exclusive resort of Vilamoura with its vast marina, fringed by sophisticated waterside restaurants serving everything from rustic Portuguese seafood dishes to exquisite, Michelin-star cuisine. Gleaming yachts of all shapes and sizes bob contentedly alongside luxury motorboats and racing dinghies while glass-bottom boat tours, day cruises and fishing charters also operate from here. Among the designer boutiques and chic cafés are an assortment of cocktail bars, sports bars and pubs giving the place a vibrant buzz, especially on a balmy summer evening.
