  • Farol de Alfanzina is on the cliff trail near to Carvelho Beach. Built in the early 20th century but seemed to be closed unfortunately.  more »
  • For me what. Lighthouse does not amount to much. Walks from here forward to Vale de Centeanes Beach and further Algar Seco and Carvoeiro is a must. Not so simple. On and off and act. Views magnificent. Strenuous and long lasting, thirsty man can gelaafd are on the move.
