Cliff Top Trail
Enjoy invigorating walks along the spectacular cliff top trail taking in stunning seascapes and wildlife. Carvoeiro has one of the most beautiful beaches of the region surrounded by spectacular sandy, steep sandstone cliffs. Heading east from the town there is a wooden boardwalk that leads from close to Carvoeiro to the 'Algar Seco' rocks. It's a short walk (520m) along an elevated wooden walkway, which skirts the top of the cliffs and offers wonderful views. The rocks are a series of fascinating cliff formations that have been carved out of the limestone. There is a cave called the “A Boneca” (the doll) and passage that leads to a small chamber and two iconic arches looking out over the ocean.
