I'm not such a beach person myself, but this one surprised me! It's a very different view when you are on top, compared to when you're at the beach. Walk down the stairs and put yourself on the beach for some time, enjoying the sounds of the sea...

Not far from Carveoiro is Marina beach. A good sized car park , with a beach bar, reached by some 100 steps down but not too steep. The beach is very clean and does not get too crowded.

Visited in the beginning of November. Place was quiet and we enjoyed every minute of it. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the Algarve area. Believe it can be super crowded during the busy season so would highly recommend for the off-season only.

We did not have time to do the entire hike of the seven hanging trails but started it at this beach then walked towards Praia de Albandeira but did not quite make it due to all the stopping to take pictures. We wanted a 3 hour round trip which we did do. This was a phenomenal walk. Highly recommend it... More

It is a lovely beach with a huge cave and nice water but it is a bit hard to access and the waves are quite big

We were here in October and it was nice and quiet. Not a beach to go if you have mobility issues. A good walk down the hill to get to it and a steep climb back up to the road. Had to jump down to it from a rock as the boards had been taken away I think because it... More

This was our favourite beach we visited in August whilst on holiday in Carvoerio. I recommend getting there early as the parking at all beaches in august is terrible. The views from the cliff tops are breath taking. Once down on the beach it appears small with a beach bar which again is very busy in August.... However if you... More
