  • A great walk along the cliffs and above the coves of Carvoeiro. Breathtaking views of the sea and along the coast. Ideal to watch the sun go down  more »
  • It’s a boardwalk along the top of the limestone cliffs. It needs a bit of maintenance in placed and there is some graffiti. The cliffs are spectacular and from the boardwalk you can adventure onto.....  more »
  • Absolutely stunning! Bring sunscreen and water, in addition to a fully charge camera/phone! So beautiful -- truly unfiltered natural beauty!  more »
  • Great views with step free access, free parking but limited and walkway only 600m, if you don't go down to the rocks. More a distraction than an attraction.
  • Brilliant place to explore the unusual geology of the Algarve. Decent shoes advised as you can scramble all over the rock formations. The boardwalk itself is accessible to wheelchairs and buggies but access to the sinkholes and arches is by foot only.
  • Wow very cool place. You are able to walk down stairs that is made stone from the cliffs. The water made some caves inside the cliffs. I lost some photos but there is a lot to see. We where there almost one hour but we didn't see everything. Maybe there will be a next time for that place ☺
  • A wooden planking boardwalk at the top of the crumbling, amber sandstone cliffs, it's plenty wide enough for wheelchairs or buggies to pass. It has stepped seating areas in strategic places some pointing east (to watch sunrises) others west (sunsets.) It's clean. There are inclines but none that would prohibit any but the most immobile chair user. Car parking is adjacent. It is a lovely, well thought out project that enables the less able to enjoy the great views of this beautiful coastline. It's simply not long enough! Or is that just being greedy?!
  • What a stunning place. Very well constructed and maintained. You really get a fantastic view of the Portugal Algarve coastline. The only issue i have is the price of the food and drink at the many stops along the way of the boardwalk is next to extortion. You could pay up to 3 times the amount for a beer or a soft drink at these bars and restaurants, The locals have really not done themselves any favours here and they will loose out to people who simply can't afford to stop for a drink or snack at these locations, also it is a bit embarrassing for some families who have to walk through these Cafe's to get down to the beeches and caves off the boardwalk that can't afford to stay even with little kids begging the parents for an ice pop or a cold drink, and you get looked at from people sitting at their tables being ripped off. I understand that they must make the most out of the busy season and they will probably close for the winter months, but I have being going to Portugal for over 7 years now and I have seen prices in the region rise dramatically over this time, so much that I don't think I will be returning there in the future. I love the local people but I feel they have gone to far in relation to there pricing in tourist areas. I come from Ireland and I have seen places close down because people are realising that they shouldn't pay these mad prices. I refuse to pay 200% more for an item because of it's location. I have walked away from Ice cream vendors at busy tourist areas because they were trying to charge €2.50 for a basic ice cream outside the door of a busy attraction, ( I simply said "that's just to much, No" and walked away) I teach my kids the right way and the wrong to make a living, and this is the wrong way.
