Olhos D'Agua, or 'Eyes of Water', is so called because of the freshwater springs which bubble up through the sand at low tide. It's a perfect spot to enjoy your Algarve break in the sun. Originally a small fishing village, Olhos retains many traditional white buildings with terracota rooftops. It has developed gradually in recent years, and today it boasts an impressive selection of restaurants and bars offering local home cooked dishes and international cuisine.
It's main attraction is a glorious Blue Flag beach. This golden stretch of sand includes many secluded coves, backed by red sandstone cliffs with pathways to walk. There are other fabulous beaches nearby to explore. Just to the east of Olhos, and reachable at low tide, Falesia has a spectacular unbroken 7km. expanse of sand. To the west you can discover the golden beaches of Praia Maria Luisa and Santa Eulalia, in addition to many more in the Albufeira locality.
