Rich in history yet modern and sophisticated, Carvoeiro is a picturesque fishing village with a variety of small white sand beaches surrounded by limestone cliffs with crystal clear waters where the wind and the tide have sculpted beautiful caves.

What will the weather be like...

The Algarve on Portugal’s southern coast is blessed with sunshine all year

May – September offers the best sunshine, warm and sunny with an average of 11 hours sunshine a day and virtually no rainfall, average temperatures ranging  between 23 – 30 C, although the sea breeze usually makes it pleasant in the hottest months.
