  • Carcovelos Beach and Sao Juliao Fort

    View of the Forte Sao Juliao da Barra (Saint Julian Fort) at the eastern end of Carcavelos beach. Presumably the fort is set here to defend the entrance to the Tejo river and Lisbon a few Km upstream.

    Carcavelos is one of the most popular beaches around being the closest large, sandy beach to Lisbon. If you look the opposite direction from here there is a large stretch of golden sand.

    The beach here is also one of the best surf spots in Portugal. Consistent throughout the winter, this beachbreak is known for its powerful, barelling waves.

  • Carvoeiro

    Forty or fifty years ago Carvoeiro was the quintessential Algarve fishing village. However, being halfway between the resorts of Albufeira and Portimao it was only a matter of time before the tourist industry caught up with it.

    Carvoeiro is still a lovely spot though. It can get a tad busy mid-summer but there are quite a few little coves nearby to explore.
