This stunning and little known Paradise Beach (Praia do Paraiso) can be reached by going up the hill from Carvoeiro town square towards Monte Carvoeiro. Paradise beach is rather small and can pretty much disappear during high tide (be sure to check the low tide times to avoid disappointment). There is a long set of steps leading down to the beach and it might not be suitable for children or someone who is less able to walk. It has no facilities and swimming might be difficult at this beach, however it is perfect if you want to relax and peacefully soak up the sun. There is a lovely restaurant/lounge bar at the top of this beach where you could try local specialities and watch the sunset. Highly recommended!
