Santa Luzia is also close to Tavira and a visit is a must. Known as the Octopus Capital of the Algarve, fishermen over the generations have worked the seas, to bring a bounty of seafood, which local restaurants prepare to very high culinary standards.The old wooden fisherman houses are still prominent as you enter the seafront, and the working harbour & market comes to life every morning to sell the nightly catch.
Capelo & Vincent are two of the more prominent quality restaurants offering a wide variety of delicious dishes, made from local produce and beyond.
The lively bars & cafes are inviting as locals & visitors mix in a balmy atmosphere. Meia Pipa particularly worth a visit especially when the live music nights are in full swing!
Boats bobbling on clear blue waters add to the picture postcard scenery that greet the visitor, whatever the time of year.
Santa Luzia is just one the many great attractions Colina Verde has on our door step. Planning a holiday in the beautiful Algarve? Take a look at our deals.
