Things To Do In Carvoeiro

The very first time I went to Portugal, I spent my time worrying that I wouldn’t be able to find things to do in Carvoeiro. After all, I love exploring but whenever you mention a trip to Portugal, you hear about how gorgeous Lisbon, Porto or Albufeira are. Little ol’ Carvoeiro? It’s not mentioned as […]

Carvoeiro Beach: Praia De Paraiso

If you stand at the precipice staring down at Carvoeiro beach, you’ll see it’s an incredibly beautiful sight.     But when you look at the sands of Carvoeiro beach you see sunbeds, umbrellas, boats for day trips to the caves and a whole lot of people. Which, when you’re trying to relax, is less […]

Carvoeiro To Ferragudo

Ferragudo, like Carvoeiro, was a place I hadn’t really heard of until I was on my way there.     After exploring the coastal cliffs of Algar Seco, S and I decided that we wanted to explore further afoot and so we hopped on Carvoeiro’s Land Train to see what lay waiting for us in the […]

Walking Along Algar Seco

Algar Seco was one of those walks where you have no idea where you’re heading, but you choose a direction and wander anyway, only to find yourself in a rather beautiful spot.     After heading down to Gelados and Companhia for breakfast (crepes if you were wondering – I had ham, S had ham […]

Cliffside Climbing

A short while ago I wrote a post about a boat tour through the caves of Carvoeiro, but what I didn’t mention, was that on the way back, we saw this. Update: This is how the magic people got inside. This picture peaked my curiosity slightly more than the boat trip itself, because it gave […]

Ele and Ela, Carvoeiro

Nestled in the centre of Carvoeiro, is Ele and Ela, a bistro-style eatery serving up an array of Mediterranean dishes on a small but eclectic menu in an inviting and unpretentious setting. Created by chef and host Harald, the cosy restaurant has built up quite the loyal following, and so bookings are very much advised! […]

Exploring The Carvoeiro Caves

The Carvoeiro caves were one of the first things which caught my eye when we stopped to visit Carvoeiro, the little Portuguese town situated along the Algarve.     When I first walked around Carvoeiro, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was just another “sea-side town” with inflatables and flip-flops lining almost every shop front. But […]

Gelados And Companhia

This is the face of a girl who is hopelessly in love with Gelados and Companhia’s waffles and gelato.     This is the face of the girl who is sad that said waffles and gelato are all gone.     If you have ever tasted Gelados and Companhia’s gelato you’d understand why running out […]

Hello Carvoeiro!

On Saturday evening I arrived in Portugal. I stepped off the plane and was instantly swaddled in a 35 degree embrace. My suitcase wheeled infront of me (I don’t carry much luggage so S and I shared a suitcase which he was very kindly wheeling!) all the way to the car rental shack. Keys in […]
