When staying in Carvoeiro this is our favorite beach. Love going in the evenings and watch the waves hitting the coastline as the sunsets, with a glass on wine from the OneStop restaurant on the beach.

Plenty of parking, sandy beach and restaurant/ bar. The only downside is it's steep slope down to the beach but there are steps alongside so most people should be able to access it.

Tucked away but easy to get to, this small beach is a delightful sheltered place even on a winter's day. The backdrop of cliffs just adds to its attractiveness

This lovely little beach is quite well hidden away , only small but quite a suntrap with the high cliffs behind it. Access is via what seemed like a hundred steps - but well worth it - you do have to wait for the tide...More

Love this little beach. It is hidden away so isn't ever too busy. Very safe and clean and the waves are nice. Great for family and children.

Came across this beach on a walk out of Carvoeiro. Easy enough to access. Enjoy relaxing or then continue the cliff walk like ourselves.

This is a lovely beach with a bar (Ostop) at the top. The bar service is sometimes painfully slow, especially during the summer holidays. There are sun beds and umbrellas to hire. Not a lot of shelter from the sun, so take shade with you....More

Really enjoyed this beach, it has a cave at the end and the color of the water is beautiful. It also has a restaurant at the beach and the access to the restaurant and the beach itself is easy.
