Carvoeiro beach is one of the nicest in Algarve terms of scenery aginst the backgorund offered by the lovely village. Our first attempt to spend a day here was on a Saturday after 11 am and we had no chance to find any free sunbeds...More

Lovely little beach which is clean and accessible for all. Obviously it’s the Atlantic so the sea can be a bit rough but is attended by life guards which is always good to know.

Stopped here for the afternoon with free time on a tour. It is definitely a small beach. However, it has everything you need...bars, restaurants, shops, bathrooms and showers. There was even entertainment at night. The sand is a little course so you may want water...More

As with most beaches in Algarve the sea is deep very quickly but it is a lovely beach. Does get very busy in high season. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Tourist information very near the beach and very helpful.

Lovely beach with shops and places to eat and entertainment in the evening nearby. There are lifeguards and it’s pretty busy as expected, in summer. It’s quite rocky with some sharp stones if you’re near the shore. It put my daughter off swimming there again...More

A fantastic looking beach, especially from the cliffs surrounding but!! In August it was packed, you would struggle to get a space by 9am and it is tiny so it is rammed all day, don't expect any space around you. It is a coarse sand...More

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
