Information That Will Help With Your Visit to Carvoeiro

Whether you are staying in Carvoeiro for a day or a week, there are a few things that you can't miss. These include the Our Lady of the Incarnation chapel, Benagil Cave, Diver's Cove, and the Black & White night festival.


Benagil Cave

Located on the Algarve coast of Portugal, the Benagil Cave is a great attraction to visit while you are in the area. It is a rock formation that is known for its skylight and turquoise blue waters. The cave is also a popular tourist spot, so there is likely to be a lot of people around.

The best way to see the cave is to take a boat tour. There are several companies that offer these trips from nearby beaches. The prices vary, but they are usually cheaper than visiting the cave on your own.

Getting to the cave is not an easy task. You will need to be smart about how you go about it. Most people opt to stay in other towns in the Algarve while they visit the site.

Black & White night festival

During the summer solstice, Carvoeiro, Algarve, hosts the Black & White night festival. In the past, the event has attracted over 30,000 people. This year, it is expected to be even bigger.

The main event will take place in the town square of Carvoeiro, where a DJ will perform. In addition, live music and dance performances will also be held. The party will continue into the early hours, with DJs performing on the town's famous beach. The whole night will be free of charge.

The streets of Carvoeiro will be closed to traffic during the Black & White night. A free shuttle bus will run from Aldi and Apolonia. The bus service will run from 6pm to 4am.

The festival is open to all ages. All attendees are encouraged to wear white or black clothes. The event will also have a synchronized firework display. This is a traditional part of the celebrations in the region.

Our Lady of the Incarnation chapel

Located in the municipality of Lagoa, the Fort of Our Lady of the Incarnation is a small fortress built to protect the population of Carvoeiro from pirates. It is located on the hill overlooking Carvoeiro beach. There is also a chapel of Saint Mary in the fortress.

The fortress was built in the name of Regent Don Pedro. It was completed in 1670 at a height of 100 feet above sea level. In 1821 the fortress was enclosed by a wall at the bastion neck. It is thought that the small chapel, which was originally used for religious services, served the local garrison.

After the earthquake of 1755 the fortress suffered a great deal of damage. The eastern wall remains. The chapel has been expanded and restored. It is now open to visitors.

Diver's Cove

Located at Quinta do Paraiso Resort in Carvoeiro, Portugal, Diver's Cove is a diving centre that offers dive training and certification for both beginners and advanced divers. They also offer boat dives on Algarve reefs and shipwrecks.

The underwater world of the Algarve is incredibly diverse. In addition to the many shipwrecks and coral reefs that adorn the area, there are also numerous species of fish to see.

There are several diving centres in the region, including Easydivers and the SSI Diamond dive centre in Albufeira. They offer courses for all levels of divers and have a range of gear for those interested in spearfishing and wall diving. They also offer discounts for groups.

The most impressive of all is the Garajau marine reserve, located south of Funchal. This is a unique project that allows you to explore an underwater treasure trove of ships. There are four sunk Portuguese navy vessels that have been cleaned of hazardous materials and now form part of the park.


Located in the Algarve, the Carvoeiro boardwalk is a great way to see some of the incredible rock formations that are found along the coast. The boardwalk is a wide wooden walkway that connects to Carvoeiro beach. It is a wonderful walk that takes around 10-15 minutes.

The boardwalk is also a great place to explore small caves. The stairs are carved into the cliffs, and you can find some that lead to small holes and honeycomb pitted strata.

The best time to visit the Carvoeiro boardwalk is early morning. This is when the sun isn't too hot and there isn't too much traffic. You can watch birds fly by and enjoy the views.

The Carvoeiro boardwalk is also a great place to watch sunsets. The area is full of beautiful rock formations and grottos.
