On a Carvoeiro trip you’ll be visiting a town that sits at the border between the Central and Western Algarve with not much to its name from a historic point of view except for a naval battle that took place back in 1554 off Cape Carvoeiro.
Except for that, the once small fishing village would just survive off of tuna catches, but the days of fishing for tuna and attacking Turkish corsairs are long gone, and today Carvoeiro is a popular resort, very popular for family holidays.
Families tend to love spending their holidays here because it offers a wide array of self-catering accommodation options and everything that you may need for you and your family can be easily found in a very compact part around the town centre. Families also benefit the most from our Carvoeiro car rental services.
Even though the town has been around for a long time, it’s been nothing more than a simple fishing village for the largest portion of that time and this means that the centre of town isn’t very large, but it is quiet and charming and only a short distance from the beach.
The local town beach, Praia do Carvoeiro, is a very beautiful and sandy beach, with calm waters thanks to the sheltered bay and the cliffs that protect it. The beach is good for a variety of watersports as well, and you can find jetskis and pedaloes to rent on the beach, not to mention that there are quite a few diving school in Carvoeiro as well, so scuba enthusiasts will have a great time as well.
There are of course many other things to see and do while in Carvoeiro, so you should employ some Algarve car hire services in order to expedite your transportation through the city and even around its surroundings, because the Algarve region has so many things to offer, all of which are within reach.
