Hi, I agree. I go May Day bank Hol weekend last four years & this week it has been so quiet. As you say the restaurants & bars down on the seafront quiet. Came home Weds and was surprised at how quiet it was compared to previous years.

It’s still quite early in the season yet, although in May there are generally quite a few people around. It will be a different story in a few weeks time when there will be people queuing for tables everywhere.

We’re going next week, and looking forward to the break. Peace and quiet will suit as long as the weather is nice.

Hi Cooknoe

Weather was lovely & looks set to continue. Hopefully by time gets busier beach front will be sorted as steps not yet repaired & steps at Passaro beach restaurant not accessible due to rock fall. Olhos beach & Maria Luisa look very different due to the storms & loss of sand. So much rock exposure everywhere now.

Sure as it gets towards school hols it will pick up.

Have a great trip

We are in olhos just now and it does feel quieter than usual but at least the weather is nice and going to continue. We like it nice and quiet though.

We dropped into Vilamoura marina at 10pm on 2nd May and couldn't believe how quiet the walkways and restaurants were, compared to Oura which was so busy.

Hi, have you noticed if Black Cats open ? It was closed and someone said Rui wasn’t very well. Such a lovely guy & we were looking forward to seeing him again but for the few days in Olhos it was closed. Thanks
