Your Gateway to Portugal & Algarve



Carveoiro in western Algarve, making it just about in the central Algarve, with the EN:125 road running along the edge of the town.  Lagoa district has some of the best water parks and golf courses for the area. There is a large old Adega (wine Co-operative) just near the traffic lights in Lagoa, one of the first of its size for Portugal. Being around 65 years of age, it is well worth a visit to sample and buy wines of the local regions.

Whilst on the way to Carvoeiro, there is a good choice of supermarkets, Pingo Doce, Intermache, and Aldi, Where you can get fresh fish and meat. Carvoeiro has very picturesque views and is well known for its coastal cave trips by the local fishermen who know the waters very well. The main small beach is directly off the main road that circles the Town. With most beaches in the Algarve, Carvoeiro has a wheelchair/pushchair friendly decking and access to its sandy beach.

Carvoeiro has many good restaurants any many can be found on what is known as restaurant hill. For most of the year the town is quiet. Peak season gets busy due to the fact it offers lots of holiday rental properties in the nearby hamlet of sesmarinas, just off towards the east of Carvoeiro. It is due to tourism from the 1960’s that turned a sleeping fishing village into the status of becoming the town it has become today.
