To see Carvoeiro

A small beach, sometimes overcrowded as many in Algarve, is located in a beautiful area of the coast.

​With plenty of accommodation (as everywhere else in the coast, as a matter of fact) it’s a good place to stay and to start a boat trip following the coast.

The most beautiful spot around Carvoeiro is this strange rock formation, used to shelter a bar. Erosion is dictating its laws, (with men’s help), but it’s still possible to see some odd formations.

​One doubt: Is it still there the panther that I caught in a 1975’s photo? Since I had no answer I must go there and check! Maybe this summer, since this area is my first option to next vacation in Algarve.

And no! The answer is no.

In 2022 I looked carefully everywhere, but the panther got away.

Perhaps it is to warn tourists to be careful on the beach…

Caves

Most of the caves in the Algarve are only accessible by boat.

In Algar Seco there is an exception, a cave elevated relative to sea level, and with openings with good views over the ocean.
