Carvoeiro is a tranquil part of the Algarve that stems from humble beginnings as a small fishing village. It has a small, secluded, sandy beach where life spins round the cities’ main square.
Carvoeiro is home to a great natural harbour and remains sheltered from the winds due to its location between rocky headlands and thus ideal to spend your Algarve sun holidays.
The close beach is not big, but extraordinarily clean and beautiful, with neighbouring beaches within easy walking distance. The resort has maintained plenty of its character from when it was only a tiny fishing town and this makes it perfect for families looking to relax on a golden beach.
There is quite a lot to do in the region, with one highlight surely being the astonishing rock formations around the shore that can be admired from boat trips round the Algar Seco.
The nightlife here is pretty lively, as is the shopping district with lots of stores providing quaint products – perfect for mementos, or as gifts to family and friends.
Topped off by some exquisite restaurants that cater to all palates Carvoeiro is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy all the Algarve has to supply in a more tranquil, peaceful setting.
Carvoeiro is a brilliantly positioned resort on Portugal’s Algarve coastline that’s great for relaxed breaks with the kids, as a couple, or just with friends. It’s not the largest or busiest resort in the area, but if you want to enjoy a spectacular coastal spot, with all the facilities you need for an amazing break, holidays in Carvoeiro are perfect.
Once a small, traditional fishing village, Carvoeiro has retained much of its original charm, and the sheltered sandy bay is beautifully situated between dramatic cliff faces jutting out into the water. Fishing boats still bob about on the water, and while the town centre does have shops, bars and restaurants for holidaymakers to enjoy, tourism hasn’t spoilt the natural landscape, with fantastic walking trails to be found.
Book your break to this charming Algarve holiday spot and look forward to a laidback escape within easy reach of the area’s attractions.
