What a fantastic beach. Gets a little busy as it’s quite small but not to the point you feel crammed in. Plenty of bars and amenities nearby and ice creams for the kids. If it gets to hit a cooling dip in the Atlantic is...More

Nice little beach worth a visit. The only draw back the sun beds are very expensive they are sold in pairs 30 euros over priced. Otherwise the beach is lonely and gets very busy.

Thank god we had a rental car. This beach is overpriced and overcrowded. Paid €30 for two sun beds. Other beaches in the area charge €13-15. Only came here once as it felt claustrophobic. Praia Grande in Ferragudo is much nicer.

Spent a week here after a super week in Lagos. The place is beautiful however it’s full of overpriced restaurants and shops. It’s not got the clubs of Albufeira which is a bonus. At most I would spend a couple of days here.

Thank Memaga

Jane, I think your question has mainly been answered. There are lots of Brits who stay over in Carvoeiro during Christmas and New Year. Our Villa owner last year, who is herself British, said that there is a real party... More

It is probably the safest I have ever felt on holiday ( and that includes the UK ). The locals are extremely friendly and helpful and they love children and welcome them everywhere. The beach is lovely and a real sun trap... More
