Carvoeiro Introduction

Set on a steep hill covered in whitewashed houses with red tile roofs, Carvoeiro still has the look of a traditional Portuguese fishing village. Carvoeiro is now better known for its beaches, and the town slopes down to the golden sands and turquoise seas that make up the coast. With a lively seafront with friendly bars and local restaurants, Carvoeiro is ideal for a relaxing beach break.

Hotels in Carvoeiro

Along the seafront you'll find a number of luxury hotels in Carvoeiro. With rooms featuring balconies overlooking the sea, jetted bathtubs and premium bedding, you'll be able to totally relax in these 5-star properties. Many of these Carvoeiro hotels have more than one outdoor pool, full-service spas and even waterparks, as well as a choice of restaurants on-site. You can find Carvoeiro hotel deals if you look a little further from the coast. You'll find apartments and guesthouses that offer basics such as free WiFi, so you can stay in touch, and cooking facilities that are ideal for families travelling with kids.

Where to stay

Carvoeiro is set on a hill, so you wander through steep narrow roads to get through the village. There's a wooden boardwalk which takes you along the seafront, which is an easy way to enjoy views over the rocky cliff. Next to Carvoeiro Beach there's a large plaza where you'll find restaurants with outside tables overlooking the sea. Here you'll see tourists wandering from the beach to one of the relaxed bars during the day, and at night to the lively jazz or cocktail bars which have music that drifts into the streets.

Things to see

Carvoeiro Beach is set in a rocky cove at the foot of the hills and is a lively, family-friendly beach lined with bars and restaurants. Just a short drive down the coast, which has dramatic rock formations such as arches and caves, the beach has shallow, calm waters, ideal for swimming. As you climb the steep steps down to the light sands, you can see for miles across the bright blue ocean below. Farol de Alfanzina is a 1920s lighthouse that looks out over Carvoeiro. Many Carvoeiro reviews recommend taking the walk to the lighthouse, which has tours for a couple of hours each week. As you climb up the narrow staircase you'll enjoy spectacular views across the ocean and seafront. If the lighthouse isn't open you can still wander around this rocky area, which has interesting features such as sinkholes.

How to get to Carvoeiro

Faro Airport is just an hour away by car and there are taxis and hire cars available. There are flights arriving in Faro from across Europe, with extra routes during the peak summer season. From Faro Airport you can also take a bus to Faro train station, then take a train to Portimão, from where there are buses that go to the centre of Carvoeiro. You can travel in Carvoeiro on the land train, which goes through the tourist resorts, or drive through the narrow winding roads.
