12 06 2007
If you like seafood and sun, then the Festival do Marisco in the Algarve in August is definitely for you.
The best place to celebrate the festival is the traditional fishing village of Olhao, one of the most picturesque locations in the Algarve.
During the festival rows of stalls line the streets selling what is undoubtedly the best fresh fish in the world.
Additionally, there is traditional folk dancing and singing to take in while sampling some of the culinary delights of the festival.
The Algarve has been one of Britain's favourite tourist destinations since the 1960s and continues to be so today.
Golf courses sprinkle the area and many Europeans, including Dutch and Germans, have bought second homes in the area.
During the summer, the Algarve benefits from uninterrupted sunshine and warm weather. And the area's beaches are widely regarded as some of the best in all of Europe.
