Cabo Carvoeiro (Cape Carvoeiro) is cape which lies on the Atlantic coast, along the westernmost point of the Peniche Peninsula, in the civil parish of Peniche, Leiria District, Portugal.

Opposite to the Berlengas archipelago, the cape is integrated into a natural terrestrial and maritime reserve, in the vicinity of Furninha, a site known for the discovery of prehistoric remains suggesting human occupation since the Neolithic.

Owing to historical storms and shipwrecks, a 25 m (82 ft) high lighthouse was constructed on the promontory to assist maritime shipping.

  • Nice view and stunning coastline. It's worth to make a short trip to this place. Plenty of parking spots (after season) available.

  • A lovely place to watch the sun go down the horizon. It is common for people to gather and drop by to watch the sunset. If the sky is clear, one is able to see Berlengas and Farilhões. Sometimes, at night, if the sky helps, one is able to see various fishing boats together in the South of Berlengas. It kind of looks like they are having a party (even though that's not the case).
  • Beautiful place to see the cliffs in Peniche.
