Breathtaking views out to the Atlantic Ocean. Pleasant walk along the cliffs. If in the area, be sure to visit and enjoy.

Visited early one evening to watch the sunset. It was a fabulous ambience to sit within the rocks. The staff were friendly even though we only had a drink. The food looked good so we will return. Not to be missed.. we will be back.

The boardwalk at Algar Seco is free and there are clifftop walks beyond the Boneca bar. The walk down the hill into Carvoeiro has lovely sea views all the way - but it is a steep walk back! While in Carvoeiro, it is worth... More

Lunch in the square in Ferragudo is a must. Take the trouble to walk up the hill towards the church via the narrow cobbled streets. Also, walk along the harbour side past the nets and grilling fish - but don't stop there... More
