Photographer's Note

Hi TE freinds

This beach is the Albufeira area

It's a cal beach. I found one picture of the Summer there and post in WS

I hope you like it !

Olhos de Água Beach is situated in the picturesque fishermen village of Olhos d’Água (meaning “Eyes of Water”), this Beach owes its name to the existence of several spring waters by the sea and inside it.

Olhos de Água Beach is very frequented given its tourist and urban character, with a central plaza with esplanades where one might contemplate the sea, and a small pedestrian walk in front of the sea surrounded by exotic palm trees.

Facilities
Large Car Parking; Restaurant; Toilets; Lifeguard during summer time

Albufeira
The town of Albufeira was once designated as "Sea Castle" (Castelo do Mar) by the Arabs (Al-Buhera, on the 8th century) because of its height and its amphitheatre form over the ocean.
From the Arabian period, Albufeira inherited the narrow small streets, the old castle and the very white houses with arches and small windows to protect from the warm weather.

From the old fishermen village of old traditions, nowadays it is left the Pescadores Beach (Fishermen Beach) with its colourful embarkations that currently are dedicated also to the Tourist visits to the fabulous sea caverns of this coast.
