Originally a small fishing village, Portimão today serves as one of the most populated towns in the Algarve and also a favorite spot for sailing.
Step out of the city life by going to Praia Da Rocha and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Relax by the water at Praia da Marinha and Falesia Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Portimao side-trips: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Olhao) and Pescadores Beach (in Armacao de Pera). The adventure continues: stop by Porches Pottery.

To find traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Portimao online itinerary planner .

Jorge.
