Not only is the food good in this restaurant/bar the location is breath taking - be there at sunset!! Friendly staff who have always got time for you - even when busy. You may have to wait a while when the place is busy - but chill out and enjoy the surroundings. I think their Chicken Piri Piri is the... More

We have visited Algar Seco a couple of times over recent years & it is absolutely beautiful. The parking can get busy late afternoons or early evening but it's so worth a visit. You can park at the rocks or walk along the broad walk from Carverio. It's gorgeous just as the sun is setting. Down the rock face is... More

Great cliff scenery & views along the coast. Exciting scrambles through caves & cliff ledges & a nice bar/restaurant.

We only stopped for two ice-creams beside the lovely swimming pool but it really looked a nice place to stay. Small apartments and lovely bungalows overlooked the tea . Well worth looking up. Where? Tripadvisor of course!

The unusual placed restaurant is accessed from a car park via steep steps and therefore is not suitable in my opinion for disabled people. The restaurant serves great food and drinks at reasonable prices with friendly staff and is close to the strange rock formations and caves which is a must see. At the restaurant I had grilled sardines which... More

I was given directions to this place, being told that it was next to the 'Boneca Bar' - it's not! The best way to find it is to walk along the Wooden Walkway and it's halfway between Boneca Bar and Carvoeiro Beach. The place is a little gem, lots of paths cut out of the Rock allowing you to clamber... More

Access the board walk near here for great sea and cliff views. The board walk goes into Carvoeiro. See some great sunsets from here.

Nice place.. great walk on the cliff tops on the board walk. Not that great for little uns. . There are a few places where they could have a mischief if you don't have hold of them.
