Carvoeiro beach chosen as 'Best in Europe' in 2018 by European Best Destinations

Praia de Carvoeiro has been voted on the first step of this European Podium as the Best Beach in Europe! Carvoeiro is probably one of the most beautiful places we have seen during our travels in Europe. Once on the spot get ready to be stunned by this place, you will soon decide to empty your bank account, get rid of your return flight ticket and stay in this little corner of paradise for the rest of your life. The sea is beautiful, the water is neither too hot nor too cold, the waves can be strong or on the contrary gentle enough for paddling and discovering the coves around. Carvoeiro has the charm of a little town of Algarve. We recommend the "Castelo Guesthouse" which offers the best views on the beach. We also recommend the "Suites Alba Resort & Spa" if you like to relax and be pampered like a star. Book your stay in one of the best hotels, apartments, B&Bs or villas in Carvoeiro, at the best price and your best activities in Algarve such as a 2-hour caves and dolphin watching cruise or a Paddle Board tour to discover the unexpected caves of Algarve.
