The allure of Praia do Carvoeiro

Since the dawn of tourism in the Algarve, the quaint fishing village of Praia do Carvoeiro has charmed visitors with its magnificent coastline, beaches and relaxed way of life.


Unlike many other coastal resort towns in Southern Europe, Carvoeiro has been developed sensitively, with no high-rise construction and respect for local architectural heritage.


Sports enthusiasts are spoiled for choice with numerous golf courses, a tennis centre and extensive water sports facilities all available in the local area. Amongst the most popular attractions are the rock formations and grottoes of the sandstone cliffs, such as the famous Benagil sea cave.


Local restaurants serving fresh grilled fish and seafood specialties, along with fine dining options and international restaurants for all tastes make Carvoeiro an excellent destination for lovers of good food.
