You’ll find some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal near Carvoeiro, tucked away between the towering cliffs of the Algarve. The soft, golden sand and crystal-clear waters are the perfect place to relax. The town is also a good pushing-off point for exploring some of the most scenic attractions in the Lagoa area, due to its convenient access to both the east and west coasts, where there are more beaches, towns, and caves to explore.
