Located in the Algarve region of Portugal, Carvoeiro is home to some of the country’s best beaches, as well a wealth of natural beauty and a number of historical attractions. The sandy shores are ideal for sunbathing and playing with families, and are popular for sports-lovers, with a range of water activities from swimming to jet-skiing. You’ll also find deep sea fishing and canoe-riding, and there are several boat trips that will take you to the nooks and crannies of the coastline.
Carvoeiro town is home to a number of cultural attractions, ideal for a day off the beach and out of the sun. The Shrine of Nossa Senhora da Encarnação is particularly popular, a 17th century chapel overlooking the sea, lying next to an old ruined fort, one of the first of the Algarve’s coastal defences. Alfazima’s Lighthouse is also popular; while more modern, having been built in the early 1900s, it offers fantastic views and some excellent picture-postcard opportunities!
