Geologic Formation · Landmark
Create an itinerary including Algar Seco
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.

  • A must do area to visit. The boardwalk easily gets you around but be sure to venture off a bit to get those stunning views from the cliffs, but be careful.

  • Great views. We had a pushchair amd plenty of places to leave. Park at the end of the walk. Stunning views on the walk. Great little caves to climb in. Quite a few steps down if you struggle. But benches at each section
  • Brilliant day out make sure you hire a boat so you can see the sand stone cliffs and caves. Boat prices vary but well worth it.
