This is the ultimate anti-stress area for families with children, as well as everyone wanting to enjoy a harmonious holiday away from the hectic life in the city.
Moncarapacho is a small country village in the eastern Algarve not far from Faro. Being in the less commercialised Eastern Algarve, the area is tranquil. The real attraction of the village is its relaxed and friendly atmosphere and its unhurried pace of life.
It is set in beautiful countryside which is home to growers of oranges, lemons and figs, and the area is also a big producer of flowers. The village itself is situated 8km northeast of Olhao and about 10km east of Estoi.
The town offers all the basic facilities, including three good small supermarkets and a small local produce market. There are also several decent restaurants and plenty of pavement cafés. It even has its own tiny museum and police station. There is also a good ceramic factory shop on the edge of the town which is locally noteworthy.
Located where it is, within a 20-minute drive of Faro airport and only 3km from the IP1 motorway, Moncarapacho makes the rest of the Algarve easily accessible, if you have hired a car (which is definitely recommended).
The nearest beach to Moncarapacho is the Ihla da Fuzeta beach, which is 8 km away. It can be reached by a 5-minute ferry ride, which runs frequently from Fuzeta. A little further east along the coast is Pedras del Rei where a narrow-gauge train takes you to the beautiful Barril beach.
Being in Moncarapacho you can’t miss out on visiting all the great towns of the Eastern Algarve, such as Olhão, Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio, and of course, the more popular towns of the Central Algarve are also easily accessible.
The Eastern Algarve is becoming an increasingly popular destination for golfers. The nearest golf courses to Moncarapacho are Quinta de Cima golf course and Quinta da Ria golf course. Golf courses to the west of Faro, which are easily accessible, include the four golf courses within the Quinta do Lago estate and the two Vale do Lobo golf courses for the golf passionate.
