Carvoeiro Beach

Carvoeiro has a fantastic beach and is just a short walk from the apartment. If you want to explore there are some fantastically beautiful beaches within a short drive.

On visiting the beach a must is a drop into the Palacio do Cone Ice-Cream shop on your right-hand side, next door to Sulley’s, as you approach the pedestrian area in front of the beach. They do the best ice-cream & crepes in town

Caneiros Beach

This beach can have wonderful waves and always has a lifeguard in the summer months.

This beach also has the most fantastic beach bar/restaurant called Rei das Praias (King of Beaches). Highly recommended and a lovely place to visit at sunset….be warned it is so popular you will need to book in advance tel 282 461 006.

Marinha beach

There are a lot of steps to reach this beach but again well worth the effort.

There is a small beach café run by a lovely Portuguese lady who is more than willing to hear you struggle with the lingo (she pretends not to speak English but she understands everything) They serve small snacks & drinks and ice creams.

If they have any you have to try a “Befana” (hot fried pork steak cooked in garlic and served in a roll). They are very cheap all across the Algarve and a bit of a Portuguese speciality.
