The Cabo Carvoeiro lies on the Atlantic coast, along the westernmost point of the Peniche peninsula, in the civil parish of Peniche in the municipality of the same name in the Portuguese district of Leiria.Opposite the archipelago of the Berlengas, the cape is integrated into a natural terrestrial and maritime reserve, in the vicinity of the Gruta da Furninha, a site known for the discovery of prehistoric remains suggesting human occupation since the Neolithic.Owing to historical storms and Shipwreck, a 25m high lighthouse was constructed on the promontory to assist maritime shipping.
