Carvoeiro is located in the centre of the Algarve coast, a pleasant 15 minute drive to the picturesque fishing port of Portimao which is also one of the finest shopping centres in the Algarve. The village can offer you all you need; fine restaurants and bars, discos, boutiques, bank, chemist and all the shops you may need on a daily basis. There are many beaches and coves in the area which are well worth visiting.
The village itself has a safe, sandy beach. Nearby, the charming little Paraiso beach reached by steep stone steps; the lovely sheltered Centiennes beach; Carvalho beach, where you have to walk through a passage in the cliffs to discover the sand; Marinha, one of the most beautiful, with its attractive coves and grottos; Benagil, Ferragudo, Pinta Dinos, Caneiros and many more.
As well as relaxing around the pool and basking on the beaches, there is much to do and see in the surrounding area. Some of our favourite trips include:- seeing the dramatic and interesting rock formations and coves at Algar Seco; visiting Monchique in the mountains where the views are amazing; enjoying the water slide parks; taking a trip up the river from Portimao to Silves; and hiring a yacht with crew for the day from Vilamoura.
