Located in the south of the country, Algarve is a magnificent region. With more sunshine than California each year, the area is ideal for sun-filled short beach breaks with a twist: the amazing golf courses of the region as well as the beautiful typical towns to visit.
Located only 5 kilometres from the city of Lagos, Carvoeiro is a former fishing village. Carvoeiro is built into steep red cliffs and centres around a beautiful cove with a sheltered beach. The town has an interesting history, with a 1670 defensive fort right outside of the town, as well as the shrine of Nossa Senhora, overlooking the sea. Located atop of the cliffs, the Alfazinma’s lighthouse is also a popular visit, with fantastic views on the sea. Short breaks to Carvoeiro are also well known for its nightlife, beginning at dusk, with many nightclubs, bars as well as great restaurants of local seafood cuisine.
Looking for an accommodation for your Carvoeiro weekend breaks? The residence Rocha Brava is ideally located just a bit outside of the town, 3 kilometres east of Carvoeiro. It is set in a natural environment, overlooking the cliff and composed of little houses. The apartments are air-conditioned and can accommodate from 2 to 5 persons. Each apartment decoration is different from another. The resort also offers 3 outdoor swimming pools as well as a beauty spa with à la carte treatments and massages. The residence also features a traditional and international cuisine restaurant, 4 tennis courts and a fitness room. Families will love the children’s play area and the children’s clubs. A free shuttle drives 3 times a day from the residence to the beach of Carvoeiro.
