Favorite thing: The original single village street has now become three streets, each with its with bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Tthere are still examples of the older quaint small houses tucked in between the modern ones. A 36-Hole Golf and Holiday Complex is to be found to the west of the village together with a well run Tennis Centre. To the east, on the outskirts of the town, is a 9-Hole Course.
A Pretty Town
Favorite thing: We only spent a short while in Carvoeiro, so never really got to see the older parts of town. This picture does, however, show some pretty villas just above the beach. Mainly the villas are very modern and obviously owned by outsiders.
Favorite thing: Several of these small beaches advertise coastal cruises, especially to view the numerous caves, and hidden coves. I'm not sure that I would want to go with this Company though. Or is someone having a laugh? LOL!!
Picturesque Fishing Boats
Favorite thing: Until the middle of the 1960.s Carvoeiro was a little-known fishing village. A 'foreigh' resident wrote about the place and its Medieval charms, and after that, the tourist flocked to the area, and so did their money!
Boats and Beach
Favorite thing: The beach at Carvoeiro isn't really that large, and I guess in the summer months it must be pretty packed.
We did notice that on this left hand edge, there was quite a bit of cliff fall, and wondered just how long the villas on the clifftop might stay there!
Nice sandy Beaches
Favorite thing: As with all local beaches, they are kept clean to a good standard. Normally you can just plonk yourself down anywhere, without worrying what you might be sitting on!
Stace (Beach Dog) trying out the sands to ensure they meed his comp[lete satisfaction, LOL!
Final Beach View
Favorite thing: One final view of the pretty beach here, with the modern villas with their magnificent views of the Atlantic, atop the cliffs.
And, it was hot - very hot, especially for early October!!
IF THE INDIAN RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED DON'T GO.
Favorite thing: THERE USED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST INDIAN RESTAURANTS IN EUROPE THERE.
Fondest memory: NOT WORTH GOING IF ITS CLOSED DOWN.
