Carvoeiro

Carvoeiro is a coastal resort and is located approximately 37 miles west of Faro Airport.  It is still described as predominantly a fishing village with life revolving around the busy town square and is often marketed as the Algarve’s “Premier” resort. It is one of the few resorts to have retained its charm over the years and is now a popular holiday destination.Carvoeiro Beach

The main beach is situated at the main town square, is sandy and surrounded by a rocky shoreline.  Some of the spectacular rock formations found in the Algarve can be found in the Carvoeiro part of the coast.  There are several other beaches all within a few miles.

Carvoeiro is well served with excellent restaurants, bars (some of which offer live entertainment) and shops.  The town is also well served with taxis and public transport.  Because of Carvoeiro’s central location on the Algarve it makes it an ideal base to explore the region.
