The Quarteira fishing harbour is a hive of activity most mornings when the nightly catch is brought ashore to be sold in the local fish market.
Quarteira has been re-modeled in recent years, however it has managed to retain its Portuguese character and is popular with Portuguese and English holidaymakers alike. The best part is the lovely palm-lined promenade, where you can spend time relaxing with lovely walks along the seafront and on the outdoor terraces of cafés and bars all around.
The beach at Quarteira is an ideal asset to the resort for a family holiday - apartments and hotels line the sea front so have fabulous views and easy access to the gorgeous beach and all the restaurants and cafés. The long sandy beach is ideal for children and the water here is calmed by a series of breakwaters, giving safer swimming conditions.
Quarteira has a vibrant local fishing community and the fishermen can be seen at work at the western end of the beach. The catches are sold at the nearby fish market early in the morning and will end up on your plate for lunch or dinner the same day.
Quarteira also offers a huge range of culinary delights, with the emphasis, of course, on the beautifully fresh fish and shellfish dishes such as grilled sardines and "cataplanas" of fish and a variety of additives!
