Olhos de Agua

Olhos de Agua, a tiny fishing village on Portugal's southern coastline, features a golden beach lapped by calm blue waves. Despite its small size, the village offers modern facilities and serves as one of the region's popular holiday retreats for families with small kids. Called the "Eyes of Water" because of the nearby freshwater springs, Olhos de Agua retains its slow pace, seemingly immune to package tourism. Although its appeal remains limited to its sandy beach and a few small bars, the village makes a good base for day trips to nearby Albufeira, where you can find more shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
