The Algarve region
The village of Carvoeiro is like a quaint shopping centre, but there are many others around (Aqua Shopping Centre, Guia Shopping Centre).
There are several water slide parks. Other activities available in the area: windsurfing, surf, para-gliding, skydiving, kite-surfing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, dolphin watching, kayaking, jet skiing, diving, snorkeling, paragliding, coastal tours, sailing, fishing.
The extensive coast line and beach area offer plenty of privacy and sunbathing space for all, without any fear of towel overlapping. There is also plenty of space for beach games such as Frisbee and the very popular bat and ball.
Walk along the coastal cliffs ...drive to nearby Ferragudo fishing village for the flea market, or Alvor fishing village (15min. away) where you can take kite-surfing lessons...or just observe the colourful kite surfers and take advantage of the extensive, new boardwalks that provide access to the dunes and beach.
Typically, the south coast beaches, because of the calmer waves and gentle slopping shoreline, are very nice for wading, beach combing, safe swimming and sunbathing.
The west coast (45min. away) is exciting, wild and excellent for surfing, body boarding, and the general enjoyment of the sea and dramatic cliffs and landscape.
You will find all the details in a Welcome Folder upon arrival, but feel free to ask us for more details!
Some restaurants: Just up the road (5min walk), the restaurant Bon Bon with excellent reviews, also does catering. On the beach of Caneiros, the restaurant Rei Das Praias looks more like a cafe, but has an absolutely splendid setting, and grills some fresh fish that is truly excellent. A bit expensive for what you get, but worth at least one meal.
Nearby beaches (2km): Carvoeiro, Praia do Molho, Praia dos Caneiros, Praia Grande.
Carvoeiro village is just 5min. drive and Praia da Rocha hub of shops, night life/Casino and down town Portimão is about 15min. drive.
F1 Autodrome and International Carting Track is just a short 20 min. drive.
Come here for a holiday out of season: a typical day in April is similar to an English summer day - with the garden looking its best.
Average day-time temps - June:18º, July:20º, August:20-28º, Sept:19-25º.
Another idea: take a day trip by car or bus to Lisbon or Seville, Spain!
