Praia do Carvoeiro

Once, just a typical Algarve fishing village nestled in a valley and flanked by high limestone cliffs, Carvoeiro is now a popular, ever expanding resort town. That said the beach is still the focus of the town and this area retains much of its charm.

Whitewashed, terracotta-tiled villas and cottages cling to the cliff sides forming a kind of amphitheatre with all eyes on Carvoeiro's prime asset - the beach.

The Praia do Carvoeiro is a smallish sweep of fine golden sand sheltered by high, ochre cliffs to either side. Having the bustling resort spilling onto the beach means there is no shortage of facilities here. You will have no problem finding a restaurant or cafe and public showers / toilets are also available.

As a Blue Flag beach Carvoeiro has a seasonal lifeguard service and also has good accessibility features.
