Carvoeiro Algarve, Portugal Holidays

Situated between Albufeira and Portimao, Carvoeiro has grown up from a small fishing village into a popular resort. While increasing in popularity it is an unspoilt picturesque resort with hidden coves offering sheltered sun bathing and swimming, quaint shops and restaurants. Pretty whitewashed buildings are set back into the cliff side along with a lighthouse and the remains of an old 17th century fort sitting above the town.

Whether you choose a hotel or holiday apartment close to the beach, or situated in a quiet location out of town, we have accommodation in Carvoeiro for you.

The centre of Carvoeiro is compact with just a few roads leading down into the town and they meet in a small square behind the beach. The square has plenty of cafes and restaurants and the roads leading off from it offer a further choice of shops, restaurants and bars.

The main beach, Praia da Carvoeiro, is a small sheltered sandy bay just off the main square with cliffs protecting the beach on either side. The beaches of Praia da Paraiso, Praia de Vale de Centianes and Praia da Marinha are easily reached also.

Carvoeiro is popular amongst families as if offers great beaches and facilities in a compact location. There are 2 water parks near Carvoeiro, Slide and Splash is the nearest and is located in Lagoa while Aqualand is slightly further away in Alcantarilha. The Zoomarine Park is in Guia and also a great family day out.

The bigger towns of Portimao and Albufeira are about 15 minutes away. The pretty town of Silves with its Moorish castle and riverside walkways is about 20 minutes away and well worth a visit. Golfers are well catered for in Carvoeiro with 3 courses in and around the area.

A great little resort which thoroughly deserves its good reputation. Sunway offer a range of accommodation in Carvoeiro, from 3* up to 5* so something for all budgets and tastes.
