A coastal neighborhood, really, with some amenities. The cliffs, the views, and the boardwalk are the real story. Plus there are stairs, some modern wood, some timeless ones chiseled into the limestone cliff, that allow the adventurous to scale some of the rock face.

The beautiful sea rock with the small caves, one of them with "windows" over the sea level. There is a small stair carved in the rock above the sea to cliff-jumping in.

In the town of Carvoeiro Portugal in the Algarve coast, are tons of naturally forming caves along the cliffs.

Had a lovely lunch here with the family. Kids had burger and chips, and came to their specification - no lettuce or tomatoes. The old man had calamari - not a scrap left, tuna salad for the missus, generous serving of tuna and very fresh. I had A delightful and fluffy prawn omelette. Staff are a delight and super friendly

A very beautiful hidden cove with an interesting walk to the caves which is very fascinating. A wonderful place to sit down and watch the Sun go down. My kids enjoyed it thoroughly so did we. Definitely a must visit place if you are around this region.
