Praia do Carvalho

1 2 3

O recorte da costa configura como que um “V” apertado, acomodando no seu interior um pequeno e acolhedor areal ladeado por paredes rochosas ocres e muito trabalhadas pela erosão. Um cénico e enorme leixão marca a linha central da praia, cortando o horizonte. A linha de arriba mantém-se altaneira em toda a extensão da praia: o acesso ao areal é feito através dum túnel escavado à mão na parede rochosa, onde se observam inúmeros fósseis marinhos embutidos. E alguém escavou com gosto e paciência, não só o túnel, mas inúmeros nichos, pórticos e até um cómodo espaço para um bar, em plena face da arriba. O barranco que antecede a praia é muito verdejante e alberga densos matos litorais onde dominam o zimbro, a aroeira e a palmeira-anã, a única palmeira nativa da Europa. Um emaranhado de lianas cresce profusamente sobre os arbustos, que se fazem colorir por líquenes na época húmida. Na rocha calcária já exposta à salsugem, crescem plantas típicas das arribas como o limónio ou o vistoso pampilho-marítimo.

The coastline forms a narrow V-shape, in the midst of which there nestles a small and welcoming patch of sand flanked by heavily eroded ochre cliffs. An attractive and enormous group of rocks marks the beach’s central area and cuts the horizon into two. The cliffs maintain their great height all along the edge of the beach. Access to the sand is through a tunnel dug by hand out of the rocks, where you can see lots of marine fossils embedded in the walls. And it is not only the tunnel that was dug with great care and patience, but also a number of tasteful nooks and crannies, porticos and even a comfortable space for a bar in the face of the cliff itself. The gully before the beach is very lush and green and is home to thick coastal scrubland, with a predominance of juniper trees, mastic-trees and dwarf fan palms, the only palm-tree native to Europe. A great entanglement of lianas grow profusely over the shrubs, which are coloured with lichens in the rainy season. Growing in the limestone rock exposed to the salt spray from the sea are the typical cliff plants, such as sea lavender or the eye-catching Mediterranean beach daisy.
