The eastern Algarve is full of delightful, historic towns for you to discover. Discover Olhão, Tavira and salt pans on this fantastic tour from Vilamoura.
East Tour of Algarve
At the selected time, we'll pick you up from your hotel. From there, we'll head towards the east of the Algarve and we'll visit the place where the best salt in Portugal is produced.
We'll go to a salt flat to see how it is produced, as well as admire the imposing landscape created by the rows of salt pans, a millenary tradition in the Ria Formosa. Channels, marshes, and sandbanks teeming with many species of migratory birds from northern Europe and Africa.
From here, we'll head to Olhão, where, not only will we visit the municipal market, but also the largest fishing port in the Algarve. To refuel, we'll go to a restaurant to enjoy a delicious traditional lunch.
After a hearty meal, we'll stop in Santa Luzia, a town near Tavira. Our last destination is Tavira, a beautiful town with a historic center, Roman bridges over the Gilão River, and an oriental charm. We'll stroll through its narrow streets and admire the Coreto Garden, the Ribeira Market, or the Portico da Misericórdia.
Lastly, we'll return to the hotels, after an eight-and-a-half-hour tour.
This tour includes pickup from hotels in Alvor, Portimão, Cavoeiro, Armaçao de Pêra, Albufeira, Vilamoura and Quarteira between 8 and 9:30 am.
