Carvoeiro - The Place

Carvoeiro has developed into a thriving popular resort well placed to enjoy the many leisure activities both in and around its borders. The centre of the original town with its narrow streets retains some of the atmosphere and charm of those bygone days.

There are four main beaches all with fine sand and sheltered by tall cliffs whose tops are spread with hotels and apartments like icing on a cake. The beaches shelve gently into the crystal waters of the ocean making it safe for paddling children and weak swimmers. There is wide provision for water sports including surfing, water skiing, sailing and diving. A good beach for surfing is Pintimao, eight kilometres west of Carvoeiro. There is big game fishing from Portimao where anglers can try their hand at landing blue merlin, swordfish or even a shark or two.

Golfers will find a thirty-six hole complex nearby as well as an additional nine hole course. Tennis and lawn bowling are also available.

There are buses to the hugely popular Slide and Splash Water Park which has attractions to suit everyone from ‘nervous Nellies’ to ‘kamikaze Kevins’.

There is also transport available to Crazy World which lies twenty-five kilometres from Carvoeiro. This is ideal for children having a large mini-golf course, a crodile park, a stroking farm (not to be confused with the crocodile park), quad bikes and a swimming pool.

Inland Silves, the ancient capital when the Moors ruled the land, is certainly worth a visit. Its large old castle reflects the glory of its former status.

Apart from its wonderful climate, sand and sea a Carvoeiro holiday offers a wealth of leisure activities and entertainments which will surely fulfil the expectations of visitors.
