The nicest village

Only a 2 km walk from Montinho da Luz lies the sleepy town of Moncarapacho, with almost 8000 inhabitants, a typical Portuguese Village with some supermarkets and shops for daily shopping, a post office, 2 Banks, a gas station and a few restaurants and cafe's. Discover the museum, visit the Church and check-out the pottery (Olaria). Moncarapacho is about 18 kilometres (only half an hour by car) away from Faro Airport.

Oranges, mandarins and lemon orchards, almond trees, carob trees, olive trees, pomegranate trees and other fruit trees determine the lovely landscape in the area. Here you find no industry and no mass tourism! From Moncarapacho it is only 6 km to the closest Beach, at the town of Fuzeta. You can go there to the Sandy Beach on the mainland, or take the open ferry to the offshore Island (Ilha de Armona) with fantastic, practically deserted pearl white sandy beach. Fuseta is also easy to reach by bike.

At and around the church square of Moncarapacho you will find several restaurants and terraces. In the weekends during summer, musicians perform.
