Carvoeiro was originally a very small intimate fishing village and today it still retains the same charm and many visitors find themselves returning year after year. The highlight of the village of Carvoeiro is the village square, where you can eat al-fresco with stunning views beyond the colourful fishing boats out to sea. The square is just metres from the sandy beach making Carvoeiro the perfect location for a relaxed family villa holiday.
The one and only village street has now become three, each lined with bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Happily, there are still examples of the older quaint small houses tucked in between the more recent ones.
A 36-hole golf complex can be found to the west of the village together with a well run tennis centre. To the east and on the outskirts is a further 9-hole course. A couple of lawn bowling clubs add to the choice of sport.
The area has long been considered a excellent area for tourist to acquire property and also due to the variety and pleasure provided its many small beaches. High cliffs surround most of these, and some of which have eroded to create beckoning dark caves most of which are only accessible at low tide. Beaches to visit are Praia de Centianes, Praia de Carvalho, Praia de Benagil, Praia de Marinha and Praia da Albandeira.
Guests of Algarve Clube Atlantico can enjoy discounts at the nearby Carvoeiro (Pestana) Golf & Resort which has two 18-hole championship golf courses and an large Golf Academy. Carvoeiro Clube de Tenis and the fitness centre are a short distance away (6kms).
The Algarve Clube Atlantico reception is situated in the centre of the resort and can attend to all your family holiday needs.
