Although transformed from a small fishing village to a tourist centre during the high season, this charming coastal resort which huddles around a small bay with crystal clear water has lost none of its traditional charm. In fact, fishermen still land their catch every morning on the beach to be served later at one of the many excellent restaurants that line Carvoeiro’s bustling streets.
The coastline in this area is particularly beautiful and boats can be hired to visit caves or isolated beaches. For snorkelers and diving enthusiasts, Algar Seco, with its dramatic rock formations is the place to visit. Other beaches of interest are Centianes and Marinha beach which are ideal for children.
For evening entertainment, Carvoeiro has a huge number of restaurants serving both local and international cuisine and many bars feature music several times each week. The main square is a lively gathering point where the locals meet to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the folk singing and dancing displays.
Conveniently situated close to many attractions suitable for children: Slide and Splash, Zoo Marina, Krazy Golf provide the essential requirements for an enjoyable break, Carvoeiro prides itself on being an ideal holiday resort for families, who return to this popular resort time and again.
