The Alfanzina's Lighthouse is a Portuguese lighthouse and is part of the itinerary of our sea activities that goes along the coastline, in search of hidden secrets and emblematic sea caves and rock formations with unique characteristics.

This Lighthouse was built on a rocky promontory in the place of Alfanzina, Praia do Carvoeiro, on the Atlantic Ocean, in the municipality of Lagoa, known at the time of its implantation in 1920, as 'Cabo Carvoeiro do Algarve'.

It is a white, square tower, masonry, with an annex building topped by a red cylindrical lantern. Its function is to actively assist the navigation of the vessels on the sea.

Note: Alfanzina Lighthouse is open to the public every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
