Excellent Sardines and grilled fish are available everywhere, in the Algarve, but Portimao is famous for this. Lots of restaurants specialise in this delicacy: charcoal grilled , seasoned with coarse sea-salt, eaten from a slice of bread, and washed down with red wine (or beer). This is the way we eat Sardines! So not surprising that every year Portimao hosts the Sardine Festival! This year the festival starts on Friday 6th August till 15th August, from 6 till 12 pm.

Portimão’s Sardine Festival is one of the highlights of the summer with 10 nights of entertainment, tasty food, market stalls and music. From 8pm to 9.30pm every night there will be local and regional bands playing with the main show starting at 10pm.
