A really amazing spot. Great to sit in the restaurant there and have a giant size beer and grilled sardines in the sun with the most amazing view. Many, many steps so not for really young kids or people who don’t enjoy steps! And nowhere...More

Algar seco is a rough track from the boardwalk, on top of the cliffs out to the lighthouse. Very enjoyable views. Some steep climbs too so strong shoes needed and certainly not for small children. Saw several people running on it but I wouldn't!

I cannot imagine a more chilling, relaxing peaceful, glorious spot to spend a few days. The ambience of the pool bar is enthralling. The Bistro food was of the highest order. Most memorable.

The boardwalk at Algar Seco is free and there are clifftop walks beyond the Boneca bar. The walk down the hill into Carvoeiro has lovely sea views all the way - but it is a steep walk back! While in Carvoeiro, it is worth... More

Lunch in the square in Ferragudo is a must. Take the trouble to walk up the hill towards the church via the narrow cobbled streets. Also, walk along the harbour side past the nets and grilling fish - but don't stop there... More
