Carvalhal, Portugal is a parish located within the municipality of Grandola which also incorporates parts of Comporta and all of Tróia.

Carvalhal Village is located just to the side of the Atlantic Ocean in between Comporta and Grandola on the N261 and grew up with the local industries of agriculture, wood and more recently tourism.

Carvalhal boasts some of the most pristine beaches in Portugal, many of which have earned the Gold Standard and Blue Flag awards including the much loved Praia do Carvalhal and Praia do Pego Beach.

Praia do Carvalhal

The Parish of Carvalhal is probably most famous for its Roman ruins positioned along the Troia Peninsula and today benefits from the local production of both rice and vines.

Carvalhal Village is approximately 3 kilomeres away from Praia do Carvalhal Beach and boasts a main high street where many commercial activities mat be found.

There are a variety of furniture, decoration and clothes shops as well as a number of typical bars, cafes and restaurants that serve the traditional local dishes with superb local wines or a cool glass of beer.

Due to the expansion of the local tourist industry, property prices are still fair but on the rise, and with limited availability, finding a home to buy in Carvalhal may be more difficult than you expected.
