Carvoeiro is a popular and picturesque holiday resort that although thriving and recently developed, has lost none of its fishing village charm.
It boasts a terrific sandy beach, gently shaded by its surrounding cliffs. Unusual coves and rock formations give its coastline a unique character.
Further inland is Carvoeiro’s attractive village area. It has not been afflicted with over-development and its accommodation remains low-rise and unobtrusive. Narrow streets are lined with bright white-washed houses and are ripe for exploring. There is a good selection of friendly cafes, bars and seafood restaurants. Visitors can pick up a few souvenirs in its handful of shops.
Although the village has a pleasant and enjoyable nightlife, holidays in Carvoeira never get too wild. For a more energetic scene, head over to the nearby city of Portimao to sample its clubs and bars.
This resort is perfect for families, couples and those seeking a calm resort within easy reach of nearby towns and facilities.
