In an excellent location for exploring the less developed eastern Algarve
A great base for a Winter Sun stay, Camping Olhão offers an easy-going environment with good on-site facilities. The town of Olhão itself has a working fishing port, renowned for its shellfish and little touched by tourism. You’ll still see traditional buildings and traditionally dressed locals. Nearby Tavira is known as the ‘Aristocrat of the Algarve’ for its beautiful churches, elegant houses and flower-filled squares. Boat trips to the sandbanks off Tavira and Olhão reveal fabulous beaches, bars and restaurants. Spain is close and a day trip to historic Seville is highly recommended.

We (2 adults and a dog) spent about a month there. For value it was fantastic and had everything including hot showers, clean toilets, electricity and above all it was so cheap around 9 euros a night. A swimming pool, restaurant and mini supermarket, ATM machine, security guards, free WIFI. It has everything including a large contingent of UK grey nomads. It's very laid back. Olhao the town nearby, has a Saturday market which is great, the roads to get to the campsite are good. There's an area to take the dog for a walk. It ain't the Ritz, but we'll be back - above all the weather was just divine.
