The coastal town of Olhão is only three kilometres from Vivenda Nascente. The cubic shaped, Moorish-
Olhão has the largest fish, fruit and vegetable market of the Algarve. The market is opened every morning, apart from Sundays, and offers a wide variety of fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses.
There are many restaurants, cafés, bars and shops in Olhão. Despite the growing number of tourists, the town has retained its authentic character of fishing town.
Ferry boats to the islands depart just a little east of the market. Here you can also book your daytrips through the Ria Formosa.
