Carvoeiro holidays 2020

With visible roots as a sleepy fishing village, Carvoeiro is now a desirable holiday resort just 5km to the south of Lagoa. The town is built up onto the rugged golden cliffs that spring from a small sandy beach. Its postcard-perfect whitewashed and pastel buildings include four-star resorts and quaint bed-and-breakfasts alike, as well as plenty of self-catering holiday villas. If you’re seeking a beach holiday in 2020, Carvoeiro offers a close proximity to many of the Algarve region’s top attractions. Yet there’s a slower pace of life here than larger resort towns, tailor-made for soaking in the sun or admiring the panoramic views. The atmosphere remains fairly traditional in this rustic village, with the majestic cliffs casting an imposing shadow below. The town centre has recently been remodelled, with two main roads providing access into Carvoeiro. Secluded and charming, it’s popular with couples as well as families and individuals simply looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Top attractions

Carvoeiro is well-situated near many of the Algarve’s top attractions, from water parks in Lagos to the Moorish castle in Silves. There’s plenty to see and do within the town limits as well. You can spend your holidays in Carvoeiro on its sandy beaches, or walking along its craggy clifftops. Be sure to watch out for “algares”, natural holes in the cliffs formed by erosion from the sea. These are fenced off for your safety, but offer dramatic natural viewpoints. An unusual way to explore the area is via the Carvoeiro tourist train, which departs every 40 minutes on a scenic journey to and from Rocha Prava or Ferragudo. You can also see the Lighthouse of Alfanzina, with its tile-clad interior and spiral staircase. Shopping is a popular attraction in Carvoeiro’s town centre. Its main street is lined with tourist stalls and a vibrant marketplace draws locals and visitors alike to purchase a rainbow of fresh produce. The town’s shops are well known for their exotic perfumes, handmade leather goods and fashionable clothing.

Carvoeiro’s beaches

Carvoeiro’s beaches

Carvoeiro’s beach is conveniently located smack dab in the centre of the resort. It’s just steps away from the major hotels. It provides an idyllic location for gentle walks or lounging in the sun, surrounded by the rocky cliffs. Boat trips depart from here, and there are free toilet and shower facilities for your convenience. A lifeguard is on duty, making it a safe spot to swim for families. The beach gets quite busy during the high season in summer, but is large enough for you to find your own perfect area to park your lounger and umbrella. While the main beach is the most convenient, there are plenty of other options in the area to explore. Centianes Beach is within walking distance from Carvoeiro’s town centre, or just a short drive. It offers excellent water quality, along with a beach bar and restaurant. Larger than Carvoeiro Beach, Centianes provides visitors with additional facilities and plenty of sun beds for hire.
