Although a rather easy way to see the coast, it does lead to the far more interesting and natural hanging valleys walk!

Staying right by one end I went for my morning run along the boardwalk. Great condition, plenty of space and conveniently 600m long.

Great walk with wonderful views. Wish it was longer, as it only took 20 minutes. You can be more adventurous than we were and climb down the sandstone cliffs.

The boardwalk is well built and in good condition, allowing a series of spectacular views of the coastline without feeling any sense of vertigo. Parking is easy.

We thought the boardwalk is a great idea to showcase the local and far reaching views. It is obviously very popular and well-used by all ages. It is an easy walk and we enjoyed it.

I’m not sure. If you walk up the street to the cliff on tne left side of Carvoeiro Beach, you will get to the boardwalk.
