Fuzeta is an active fishing town with a picturesque river front dotted with colourful fishing boats and wooden cabins alongside the walkway, where the fisherman sit and mend their nets.
Ferries run to the island of Fuzeta and there is a small beach with café at the end of the riverwalk, ideal for small children.
Every second Sunday of the month there is a flea market spread out from the riverside to the town.
The main indusry of this bustling town of Olhão, 15km from Faro and 20km from Tavira, is the catching and processing of fish.
Beside the river in the centre of Olhão are two large indoor markets with a delightful array of fresh produce, especially fish brought in from the port next door.
The warren of narrow streets and flat roofs lend a North African feel to the old town and the landscape.
Olhão harbor is protected by two islands with superb Atlantic facing beaches ‘Ilha da Culatra’ and ‘Ilha da Armona’, both reached by charming ferry rides from the dock near the market place.
The islands are between 10 and 20 minutes boat ride away from the mainland and house a tiny community of residents but mostly summer huts and holiday homes.There is a very popular seafood festival during august with live music and hundreds of different ways to eat shell fish!
