Crashing Atlantic Ocean waves and very cold water what more could you ask for at the end of December. Beautiful sun shine and company of family. The town is pretty and must be packed in the summer. This month, hardly anyone here so the service...More

I think your question has mainly been answered. There are lots of Brits who stay over in Carvoeiro during Christmas and New Year. Our Villa owner last year, who is herself British, said that there is a real party atmosphere around the town at Christmas, with people congregating on the beach for a BBQ, weather permitting of course.
As for local transport - there will always be the local buses to/from Lagoa which operate all year round, where you then get further along the Algarve coast, and of course Taxis are always available and are relatively inexpensive compared to UK process.

It is probably the safest I have ever felt on holiday ( and that includes the UK ). The locals are extremely friendly and helpful and they love children and welcome them everywhere. The beach is lovely and a real sun trap... More
It is probably the safest I have ever felt on holiday ( and that includes the UK ). The locals are extremely friendly and helpful and they love children and welcome them everywhere. The beach is lovely and a real sun trap. It is quite a steep gradient entering the sea and the current can be strong so a word of caution if you have small children or people who are not good swimmers. There is an abundance of reasonably priced restaurants and the quality of the food is very good. Plenty of bars showing various sports and a few shops. Good location for excursions etc. I hope to go back there again. Hope this helps.
