Carvoeiro is a small village in the Western Algarve whose initial name was “Caboiere”. The old name came from the Arab medieval period whose influence can be seen throughout the Algarve, Portugal.
The main town square is filled with typical and charming whitewashed traditional houses with coloured bars framing the doors. Most of these homes have now been converted to restaurants, bars and quaint stores.
This picturesque village with its breath-taking beaches with spectacular rock faces make it the perfect destination to just simply relax or enjoy the various sporting activities it has to offer.
Perhaps one of the most iconic images in the Algarve, the Benagil Caves (Algar de Benagil) is a place that can only be reached by water, if conditions allow. Small boats leave from Carvoeiro beach with a range of departures throughout the day, allowing you to visit this remarkable place. On arrival, you will find a unique view with the sun peeking between the giant entrance of the sandstone cave.
