Re: Island trips

Been on two island trips this visit that I really recommend. Firstly Culatra, which you reach by ferry from Olhao best for 4 Euros return. Drop off at the Culatra stop, walk along the boardwalk to the beach, then you can walk along this beautiful beach west for about an hour until you reach the lig...

Re: Pani. Spectacular Views. But is that enough?

Went tonight and really enjoyed it. Agree forget the starters but the mains were really good and so generous you don’t need starters anyway. Superb terrace view. Book and get there well before sunset.

Re: Wedding

Depending on the size of your group, have a look a Pescador in Bengali which is in great setting and you could book it all.

Fishing trips

Has anyone been on a good local fishing trip for deep sea fishing? Looking for a boat from Bengali, Ferraguda or Portimao that will offer varied bottom fishing, I went on one from Alvor and caught lots of bream but want more variety of fish. Also looking for shore fishing location tips to catch bass...

Re: Mar D'Fora

I agree. We went for the first time in June. It has a wonderful position and a pleasant walk up from the town. The starters and puddings were disappointing though the Cataplana was good. Certainly you pay for the view. Feel that Onze is much better and sitt8ng outside there is just as good. The othe...

Re: Tennis

Although a bit out of town, playing at Rocha Brava is good with 4 courts and a bar and cafe next to them

Black And White Night

Really enjoyed our first experience of this really fun night. Great Irish band on the main stage then fireworks and music. What an atmosphere in the town which was really buzzing with thousands having a great time.

Re: Terroir

We have been going there since it launched and visit every trip.The guys who run it really know their wine and there is a huge range you can taste until you find what you really like. There is a good variety of tasty small plates too. Certainly different from the traditional restaurants but a class ...

Re: Refurbished Tivoli?

Seems busy with guests - must be lots of wealthy people using it as well as offering good deals. The bar is a good platform looking over the sea but agree that O Stop is a better choice for a sunset drink, or anytime. it's a better view in a more natural environment, friendly staff and far cheaper!

Re: Vale de milo/lamb chops

My favourite for lamb chops is Jardel de Faro outside Rocha Brava. You get lots of tasty chops with friendly service in a traditional restaurant. You can finish with their great creme caramel.

Re: Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

We are going to Faro on Friday from East Midlands and we're very relieved to still have a flight both ways. We booked Ryanair with great reluctance this time after avoiding them but only did so because it suited to use this airport and times best as my wife needs assistance. We will do everything we...

Re: Sales Office

I noticed the site was down too.The link advised above just goes to a Rocha Brava page with no details of properties. I have friends interested in owning who have given up looking there and viewing elsewhere. It would be odd to put barriers in front of viewers in terms of enforcing registration. The...
