Carvoeiro Golf Holidays
Like many of the other villages on the Algarve, Carvoeiro was a small traditional fishing village, however it has now transformed into a hugely popular tourist resort, particularly for golfers.
Along with the many family resorts such as the Monte Santo Resort and the various self-catering accommodations, there are fantastic golf options such as the Pestana Carvoeiro Golf Resort, home to the Pinta and Gramacho Golf Courses, for golfers to enjoy. This resort is always popular for its all-round facilities and ability to cater for groups of golfers in the various accommodations on site from 1 bedroom apartments to 5 bedroom villas. The Tivoli Carvoeiro Hotel is another very popular choice for golfers looking for a quiet break or a couples retreat.
Carvoeiro golf holidays are in an ideal location for a quiet break on the Algarve while having all of the facilities of a bigger town just a short journey away. The centre of Carvoeiro is quite modest and there are just a couple of roads leading to the town, where they meet in a small square behind the beach. If driving to the town you will need to park along one of the side streets as there is no parking since the area was revamped in 2009.
Although small there are many shops in the town centre for your everyday needs, these shops are well used to catering for Irish & British visitors so will have all of your normal groceries. Also, there are some lovely bars and cafes to enjoy in the town square.
The beach, the Praia do Carvoeiro is a wonderfully sheltered sandy beach that opens out right in front of the main square and is protected by beautiful cliffs on either side. Carvoeiro is located approximately half way between Albufeira and Portimao and the main airport in Portugal, Faro airport is 60kms away.
