We decided to take the courtesy bus down to Carvoerio today at 10am to spend some time down on the beach, then grab a bite to eat in a local restaurant and then head back to Rocha Brava at 2pm to let the boys mess around in the pool for a couple of hours.
Carvoeiro is a little seaside village with plenty of bars, a handful of nick-nack shops a a nice beach. We were in te beach by 10:20 having bought a couple of beach toys in a shop we passed en-route. The boys had a fun couple of hours and even mummy and daddy got stuck in helping them build a tide barricade and fixing it a half dozen times as the tide persisted it’s way in to shore 🙂
We are now back at the hotel having agreed to do an evening in the town later on in the holiday to vary our food intake :-). The last courtesy bus is at 5pm which should prove perfect for the boys and their need to eat soon after this time. A taxi back might be €7 so hardly a deal breaker 🙂
We have also bought tickets for the local water park tomorrow since the temperature is set to drop to mid 20’s so will be ideal for a whole day in it 🙂
We are also considering renting a car for a few days towards the rear end of the holiday to explore some more but we will figure it out nearer the time.
