Carvoeiro coastal path closed due to rockfalls

A coastal walking path in Carvoeiro has been closed due to a cliff that collapsed onto a small deserted beach which is only accessible by sea.

The first rockfall happened west of Praia do Paraíso last week and was followed by another, much larger, one shortly after.

The path has been cordoned off by authorities, which always advise keeping your distance from the edges of cliffs.

The path is part of the Via Algarviana trail and is popular for coastal hikes among locals and holidaymakers.
