Algar Seco, Carvoeiro

4.8
#1 of 6 in Parks in Carvoeiro
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.
