Parking Meters Now Operational In Carvoeiro

Today (June 14, 2012) saw the plastic wrapping coming off the signs and meters on Rua do Barranco (the out road) in Carvoeiro and anyone parking in the new metered zone will now need to purchase a ticket to do so.

Paid parking has finally come to Carvoeiro but it is limited to only to the section of Rua do Barranco between the junction to Monte Dourado up until the rubbish bins past the junta office.

The parking fees for this area are as follows

  • Up to 15 mins – 20 cents
  • 30 minutes – 40 cents
  • 1 Hour – 80 cents
  • 2 Hours – €1.60
  • 3 Hours – €2.40
  • Maximum rate – €3.20

The paid parking will apply from Mondays until Saturdays between 8am and 8pm.

Parking will be free on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

There are two ticket machines on Rua do Barranco with one outside the Junta office and the other on the opposite side of the street.

These spaces in Carvoeiro are about the closest to the centre and are premium spaces thanks to not only being near to the square and the beach but also for being on the flat.

If you would rather not pay to park in Carvoeiro then there are still many other options including simply carrying on a little further along Rua do Barranco, or going up the hill to Monte Dourado where there is a parking area, or you could park up by Algar Seco in the other main parking area.
