A Portuguese town found in the District of Faro in the Region of Algarve, Portimao is a delightfully relaxed town. And, it's one of Portugal's most beautiful coastal areas too. There's plenty of history behind this port of call, so a visit to the fascinating attractions is a must. One of the most beautiful is the ‘Church of Our Lady of Conception', which is on a hilltop overlooking the town. Now, whilst you're here, you must pay a visit to the beaches. They're ideal for sunning - and the water is oh-so calm too. The most famous beach is, ‘Praia de Rocha', which is close to the Portimao port of call. It's just a half hour walk away. If you don't fancy walking, you can either catch the shuttle or hail a cab.
In Portimao, you'll come across a number of shops selling local products, including pottery that's often been made on the premises. The best place to shop for local crafts is along 'Rua Comerciale' and 'Rua Vasco da Gama'.
The local currency is the Euro. Portimao is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +1).
