Bustling Portimão is the western Algarve’s main commercial centre and the second-most-populous city in the Algarve. Those expecting a gritty port town will be disappointed/relieved – the centre is a small, friendly hub with a pleasant waterfront, an assortment of outdoor cafes, and sizzling fish restaurants in the old quarter and quayside. You can also arrange a boat trip up the Rio Arade. Most people only pass through en route to Praia da Rocha.
