Olhos d'agua holidays - Algarve
Some of the best beaches this part of Portugal has to offer
A gorgeous beach, superb restaurants, and a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets are awaiting you when you book an Olhos D’Agua holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
In a beautiful setting on the Algarve’s southern coast, Olhos D’Agua - meaning ‘eyes of water’ and taking its name from the bubbling springs which are visible on the beach at low tide – has developed from traditional roots as a fishing village to offer all the trappings of an Algarve holiday resort, yet has done this without losing its charm and friendliness.
Just east of the much bigger and more commercial resort of Albufeira, Olhos D’Agua brings you some of the best beaches this part of Portugal has to offer.
A refreshing change from the purpose-built attractions of Albufeira, Olhos D’Agua offers the chance to sample a much more authentic taste of Portugal, where the local fishing boat crews sell their catch directly to local residents and restaurant owners on the quayside every morning.
Then in the evening, that same fish could be the centrepiece of your main meal, lovingly prepared in authentic Portuguese style in one of the village’s restaurants.

off the beaten track in olhos d’agua
In the summer, the town’s steep, cobbled streets can be thronged, because the local shops’ wares are totally traditional, with none of the tourist-orientated diversions you’ll find elsewhere. So souvenirs of your Olhos D’Agua holiday will be the real deal – locally produced, and unique.
This is also a resort which has been discovered by many watersports enthusiasts, the calm waters being ideal for water-skiing, parascending or even just snorkeling in some remote, hidden coves.
A good choice of accommodation has grown up to meet the needs of all Olhos d‘Agua’s growing numbers of visitors, with package holidays and last minute holidays becoming ever more popular.
But you can be sure that the resort will aim to stay in the shadow of its better known neighbours – so if you’re looking for a holiday on the unspoilt Algarve, then see the deals and offers we have available at The Co-operative Travel.
