Carcavelos was built as a small town that was part of a municipality named Oeiras. The name of the old and well-known quality wines, the wine Carcavelos, comes from the smallest wine region in Portugal and it is near the first specified wine region in Portugal -- the Alto Douro, which is also one of the oldest in the world. There are many places where you can taste the local wine and eat local dishes.
Carcavelos does not have many sights to see but you can visit its amazing beaches and enjoy the sun. Praia de Carcavelos is also known for body boarding and surfing -- many locals as well as foreigners train here. So what should you do if you want something else than sun, beaches, surfing, and wine? It is pretty simple -- you can take a bus and go to Lisbon, as the capital of Portugal is just twelve kilometers from Carcavelos and there are excellent public transport connections. If you are traveling in a group, it can be even cheaper to take a taxi as most taxi companies are not very expensive.
Carcavelos is not as famous a destination as the other resorts near it, but it still attracts a good number of tourists, especially in the hot summer season. Nevertheless, there are not so many Carcavelos hostels, and finding a place to stay can be sometimes challenging. This is especially true in the summer when you have many tourists. Getting a Carcavelos hostel during the rest of the year is also tricky, as there are only a few that operate all year long. To compensate for the relatively high prices and the limited choice, Carcavelos hostels offer you a great location near the beach.
