I've had to use someone elses photos as I stupidly didn't take a camera. It was a little oasis with people diving from rocks, swimming and sun bathing. Almost like being on a film set.
Anyway - if you are around Tavira and don't mind a longish and possibly slightly dodgy walk, I would definitely consider a visit. Make sure you take towels, swimming stuff, drinks and food with you as there is nothing there. There is a wooden shack bar near the car park but that was shut when we were there.

Get on the EN397 from Tavira towards Cachopo and take a left turn, after approximately 7 km. Pego do Inferno is hidden behind the exotic vegetation, following a walk down some hundred steps. Note: Don't forget some insect repellent!
we discussed this about 1 year ago on this very forum!
A friend of ours who has stayed in both Carvoerio and just outside of Tavira noticed no significant difference on his last visit 2 weeks ago. Like anywhere small local places or those away from the resorts will always be cheaper but anywhere with comparable quality is not as cheap as you think. Cabanas is not Carvoeiro either , far from it.
Orange juice 1.50 Euro
Coffee = 60 cents
Cocktails = 2 Euros
Beer = 1.50 Euro
King Prawn/Monkfish Kebab (6 K.P, 6 M.F) with potatoes, salad = 10 Euros
Picana steak with chips and salad = 8 Euros.
3 course dinner with wine/ beer as a tourist menu price range 7.5 - 12 Euros
All from beachside restuarants and places similiar to resturaunts used in CVO
None from little backstreet places or from obscure places.
I know we can find similiar in CVO if one looks beyond restuarant hill and the mainstream and further inland and away from the beaches and main divide road. The ones I mentioned above are from the main drags in Cabanas and in Tavira.
If price was everything we would all holiday there but it isn,t.
Carvoeiro does not have a " main drag " like Cabanas , Albufeira or Pria Da Rocha, maybe if it did we would see the same sort of places but then it would not be Carvoeiro.
