Praia do Carvoeiro is the proper name, but nowadays usually simplified to Carvoeiro. Probably the best known place in Portugal to British holiday makers.

Despite being well known, it has managed to keep a low profile, having spread sideways rather than upwards. Suburbs of good quality villas, many of them with private pools, have been built to the east and west of the village.
