Had a lovely meal in a great setting. Great service also. Very casual, relaxed evening, it was a Tuesday evening and didn't need to book. Reasonably priced, great selection of fresh fish. White fizz Sangria is fabulous! Even if it's just for the location, it's a must do at least once when you are in Carvoiero.

Went to algar seco one evening for dinner and it was incredible. The lovely waiter recommended the pork medallions which were the best I've had. We had our 2 1/2 with us who had burger and chips which was really good quality meat. The setting is beautiful as the staff are lovely. Our new favourite spot in carvoiero for dinner.

Well worth a visit , a lot of steps but worth the effort for the scenery , the small cave with windows on the sea at the base

Do visit Algarve second area. The boardwalk behind Carvoeiro and the bar in the rocks make it a must do.

I a did a walk from Carvoiro beach to boneca bar the view on the walk is amazing and so calming. During the walk you have the possibility to do stops and have a sit with a beautiful view at the sitting areas. It is also possible to go down in some of the cliffs. Wear some good walking shoes...

This was absolutely brilliant, amazing demonstration of the sea's power. Getting so close is all you want to do along this coast line and getting the opportunity was no disappointment.

I've been visiting this place for 10 years and it never gets old. I love to go cliff jumping when I visit. It's very safe from rocks and there's an easy place to get out. There's a beautiful open cave that you can snorkel in when the tide's in. There's a small cafe in the rocks to go for a... More
