Brief Description

We love this little fishing village. It's on the Western side of the Algarve about 3/4 hour drive from Faro airport. We have always visited in May and found the place peaceful. There are plenty of restaurants and bars. The beach in Carvoeiro centre is small but very clean and very beautiful.

Carneiros Beach

We like to travel to other beaches and our favourite is Carneiros beach. The waves can become quite large and there is a "drag" from the sea so be careful for those little ones or those who are not strong swimmers.

Things to do in Carvoeiro

There are plenty of retaurants and bars to cater for all tastes. It's refreshing to find that the restaurant/bar owners do not "push" their business on to you. You are quite welcome to browse menus etc without pressure to enter.
The kids loved the round up bar - they received free lollies and lots of attention. The singer one evening sang postman pat and dedicated it to Fergus (son) who was over the moon!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely friendly village with everything close to hand
  • Cons:Careful when crossing the streets
  • In a nutshell:Calm, peaceful, beautiful - no lager louts!
