Long Description:
This is a picturesque beach, surrounded by the old village of Carvoeiro, originally a fishing community. Because it's so small and the village so old, with narrow roads and not very spacious, it's not advised to visit during the Summer season.... unless you will be accommodated there. Parking is a nightmare, an adventure.

However, out of the season it's a must visit place, although even by then parking may be tricky.

Provided coordinates are from the pedestrian access, which anyway is quite obvious.
Type of beach: Natural

Location of beach: Seashore

Beach surface type: Fine sand
