We came here in the winter - it was very windy but still well worth a visit. Great for a long walk along the boardwalk. The caves and cliffs are amazing.

The boardwalk at Alvor is a great place to exercise and enjoy the sun There are views of the ocean,estuary and mountains with Lagos across the bay. If you like bird watching dependent on the time of year there's plenty to see .

Alvor beach is superb, and this is a great way to see it. Plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, prices vary, but you would expect this in a very tourist area.Easy parking and wheelchair access.

If you want a lovely place to walk near the beach in Alvor this is it.It is on an elevated platform over a nature reserve.We enjoyed our walks there and the only thing missing are public toilets in the area.
