The Algar Seco is a landscape of ocher cliffs a few km from Carvoeiro ( 30mn by walk - 5/10 mn by car , free parking in front )  The rock seems to have transformed to form caves and secret passages in the cliffs.

Having done the board walk we ended up here. Friendly service and food fine. Not amazing but the beer was cold! Good selection and reasonably priced.

This has to be my most favourite place here but then I never tire from gazing out to sea . Thank you to whomever had the inspiration to build the Boardwalk. Starting from the beach in Carvoeiro, walk up the steps or go up the side road. I love going out to investigate! Great for all ages, suitable for buggies.... More

Fabulous setting here, right in the cliffs and you can go through caves to a great photo spot. Service is good and food great, although not the cheapest. If you like fish, there's no better place.

Went for a nice walk. Fantastic views. Should have taken some water with us. Nice rock pool to have a dip in. Some cliff divers (locals) were jumping into the sea. Take some sun cream with you and some trainers.
