Local area information

LOCAL BEACH, OLHOS D’AGUA

Villa Sereia is situated geographically central in the Algarve, just a 10 minute drive from the centre of Albufeira Old Town. Located near the picturesque fishing village of Olhos d’Agua (Water Eyes), a small friendly fishing village where you can still see the local fishermen hauling in the days catch on the beach – but after dark, it puts on its tourist hat. It doesn’t go party crazy like Albufeira but the clutch of restaurants and bars here aren’t quite as sleepy as they make out. Olhos d’Agua offers many great traditional restaurants, bars and small boutiques.

The local beaches have soft golden sand and shallow waters that are good for little paddlers framed by golden cliffs. There are also plenty of little rock pools to explore. The ocean, in every shade of blue and mostly calm and warm, invites you for long swims and to indulge in water sports.

A couple of large supermarkets are to be found in Olhos d’Agua as well as Pine Cliffs, a stunning 9-hole golf course with its challenging 9th hole, called the Devil’s Parlour.

A 5 minute drive away

The Strip’ walk (about one and a half miles) down to Ouro beach from Montechoro is the main tourist hub in Albufeira, crammed as it is with bars, and restaurants serving an enormous choice of food from Chinese to pizza and fast food. Restaurants and bars mix with holiday resort shops and bargain electricals. There’s a bustling quite noisy holiday vibe on ‘The Strip’, especially in the peak holiday months from end of May to Mid-September. If you’re looking for the holiday nightlife action then head to Montchoro. If a bar or restaurant is crowded that’s usually an indication it’s a quality venue!
