Explore a piece of geological history at Algar Seco, a sizeable rock formation with tunnels, arches, and rugged cliffs carved out by millennia of wind and waves. You'll find that the formation lies just a short jaunt from the main square in Carvoeiro. Wander among the winding paths and stairways cut directly into the rock, passing across rugged sections right along the water's edge. You'll be treated to views of the ocean from many areas of the formation, as well as the other parts of the cliffs curling out into the sea. Take a break if you want on one of the benches at viewing platforms along the way. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Carvoeiro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Algar Seco and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Algar Seco reviews
A nice boardwalk to walk along and take in the natural rock formations, cliffs and different hues of the ocean with the sun rays. Its a great idea to have so many boardwalks available for tourists..... more »
Leisurely celebratory lunch with friends. Perfect setting with glorious sea view. All the food is good especially the fish. Friendly staff. Booking advisable but not essential. more »
Beautiful coastline walk. Easy boardwalk from Algar Seco to Carvoeiro. It has options to descend steps down onto the cliffs, but you can stay on the boardwalk, which has excellent sea views, with seating options. Perfect for strollers and people who are less comfortable hiking or tackling steps.
Really nice place to watch the ocean.
