This hidden beach was a nice surprise. We stopped here after being dropped off by a taxi on our way to a restaurant in carvoeiro. After many steps down (!) we made it to the beach. It was very quiet (we had the beach to...More

Despite taking many seaside holidays, I'm not really a beach person, but this is stunning and little known. It is a very small and narrow beach that is reached by a steep set of stairs from about halfway up Monte Paraiso. It is very secluded...More

From the town square you have to walk up the side road up the hill. Once at the top I found a quite beach. It's worth the walk. But there are lots of steps. May be why few people visit here. Will go again

This is a lovely stretch of beach. As it was December time it was deserted. But it was quiet and a lovely place to relax.

You can find this beach at the top of the hill leading from Carvoeiro town centre to Monte Carvoeiro. There are well over 200 steps to negotiate but the effort is well rewarded. It is a small cove and is usually not busy simply because...More

This is a great small beach. In order to get to it you have to walk down lots of steps. There is no beach at high tide so my advice would to check the tides to avoid disappointment. Very clear water good for scuba diving.

Saw this on my visit to the restaurant situated at the top of the cliff. There is a long stairway going down the cliff edge to the beach. Every time we've passed it, there has only been a few people on there. I assume this...More

A beautiful, relatively empty, gem of a beach. Fine sands and clear waters make this area picturesque. If you have time, take a walk along the cliffside above - would also recommend the restaurant at the top of the Praia - delicious food and great...More
