Seafood devotees head to the fishing town of Olhão for the Festival do Marisco, for days of fresh cockles, conch, clams, oysters, conquilhas, octopus, squid and cuddle fish. Situated in the southern town in the Algarve region of Portugal, the festival celebrates the town’s history as a seaport and the subsequently delightful local cuisine – for those who love finger-licking good shellfish. Expect stall after stall of hot, grilled, steamed, sautéed and buttery seafood. And plenty of non-fishy smells and sights, too. In addition to the whitewashed walls and flattops of the Moorish architecture, folk dancing and concerts will keep visitors entertained as they eat.

Carvoeiro is one of the most popular destinations in Portugal, boasting magnificent beaches and some of the nicest scenery in the Algarve. Whether you’re looking for a beachside holiday or just a break away with the family, Carvoeiro holidays offer something for everyone, perfect for that summer retreat.
Located in the Algarve region of Portugal, Carvoeiro is home to some of the country’s best beaches, as well a wealth of natural beauty and a number of historical attractions. The sandy shores are ideal for sunbathing and playing with families, and are popular for sports-lovers, with a range of water activities from swimming to jet-skiing. You’ll also find deep sea fishing and canoe-riding, and there are several boat trips that will take you to the nooks and crannies of the coastline.
Carvoeiro town is home to a number of cultural attractions, ideal for a day off the beach and out of the sun. The Shrine of Nossa Senhora da Encarnação is particularly popular, a 17th century chapel overlooking the sea, lying next to an old ruined fort, one of the first of the Algarve’s coastal defences. Alfazima’s Lighthouse is also popular; while more modern, having been built in the early 1900s, it offers fantastic views and some excellent picture-postcard opportunities!
