Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Praia do Paraíso lies to the west of the tourist coastal town of Carvoeiro. A set of white steps leads along the cliffs to this hidden cove. Getting here is not wholly straightforward, since the walk down is steep and calls for a certain amount of concentration. In contrast to the lively town beach, there's more room for privacy here, and you will feel at one with the sand and the light blue water. Up on the clifftop you will find a stylish restaurant offering delicious dishes and a wonderful view of the sea.

Praia do Paraíso - A little piece of heaven

Lots of people are looking for heaven on earth. They travel round the globe, trying to find somewhere that matches their high expectations. But it's not always necessary to go far afield. One just needs to keep one’s eyes open. In fact, on the Portuguese coast there are many precious gems.

Praia do Paraíso is a small cove tucked away to the west of the coastal town of Carvoeiro. You reach it by following a set of white steps running along the cliffs. The view out to sea is priceless and there are plenty of platforms where one can stop and enjoy it.

Be prepared for a steep walk down. As you approach the beach the steps go sharply downhill, but every step is worth it, if you are looking for tranquillity and seclusion. The cool sea will refresh you after your walk. A lot of people go to the main beach of the town and are completely unaware of the hidden cove, so you are unlikely to be disturbed here.

Nature reveals itself at its most beautiful, since there's nothing here but you and your beach towel. Tuck yourself away here with your friends or your partner. In this paradise you'll hear nothing but the murmur of the sea.

Remember to take enough provisions for a long day at the beach, although if you don't want to cart too much stuff along you can always visit the little restaurant at the top of the cliffs. Accompanied by aromatic dishes and cooling cocktails, the heavenly view out over Praia do Paraíso will look even better.
