Carvoeiro Guide

Situated on the Algarve, Carvoeiro is known for the variety of small, attractive beaches in its proximity. A sleepy fishing village until the 1970s, it is now a bustling little town filled with shops, restaurants, expensive villas and comfortable holiday apartments.

Carvoeiro’s main beach is situated in the town centre, and offers a number of cafes, stalls and live entertainment in the evenings. Around Carvoeiro are numerous idyllic beaches, such as Centianes, Benagil, Carvalho and Marinha. Most of these are sheltered by high cliffs which have been eroded to create enticing caverns and fascinating rock formations. Algar Seco, a strangely shaped rock situated just out of town, is well worth a visit.

For sports enthusiasts there is the 36-hole golf course or the tennis centre in the west of the village. Those preferring to take a leisurely stroll can see traces of Moorish architecture in the chimneys, terraces and white-washed facades of quaint buildings scattered between more modern structures, or take a look at the shops and cafes pervading the town.

The Portuguese are passionate about their cuisine, and delicious regional dishes can be tasted at restaurants lining the roads to the left and right of the main square and town beach. The small village of Guia, just 18kms from Carvoeiro, specialises in the chicken piri piri, for which Portugal is famous. Also close to Carvoeiro are the unspoilt villages of Porches and Ferragudo. The historic city of Silves lies inland and houses an old castle with panoramic views. In fact, this entire coastline is ideal for exploring by car, with its picturesque cliffside vistas. Sagres, to the extreme west is particularly popular and the scenery dramatic.

Carvoeiro can be reached by car via the modern Lisbon-Albufeira-Castro Marim road (IP1) or by air, landing at Faro International Airport, a popular package destination from all over Europe. Trains and coaches run from other points in Europe to Carvoeiro.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
