    We will be back !
    Lovely sandy beach and even nicer secluded beaches to be found beyond the spectacular rock formations. Nice boardwalk and harbour area. We visited beautiful city of Lagos and took a lovely boat trip up to Silves.

    Great addition to Alvor
    Great attraction in Alvor. Easily accessible and close to the Main Street. You can follow the boardwalk and do a loop or keep going on the trail to explore the lighthouse at the end of the pier. Plenty of walkers and runners out enjoying the scenery

    Beautiful place to enjoy winter walks close to the beach
    This was our first trip to the Algarve and Alvor did not disappoint. Access to the boardwalk was directly from the back of our hotel. What a beautiful place to enjoy warm winter walks - we walked along it every day we went towards the town or to walk across the cliffs to the next resort. Great views and you can continue on your the nature reserve to see local wildlife although we didn’t venture that far. We used it in the evenings to access local restaurants dotted along the back of the beach but there is no lighting so had to watch our step but were gifted the light of a full moon and there’s a sports centre near the town end so their floodlights helped to guide us. We walked along another boardwalk where they had solar lights - this would be a great bonus for Alvor.

    We loved Alvor
    We visited Alvor twice during our one week holiday, the first time by walking from Portimao. It’s a lovely place with good restaurants and the boardwalk experience was great for bird watching. Returned by car (free parking) before the end of our holiday to explore the town. It was our first holiday in The Algarve and we would certainly consider staying in Alvor next time.

Stunning place to stroll, walk or jog along.
I loved my morning walks before breakfast by myself along the boardwalk, so peaceful, tranquil and safe.

Great walk on flat land all the way. Depending on tide and luck you can see birds of interest and amazing sandbanks. It is a round walk and you can extend it by going to the beach.

A lovely walk into town from our hotel with great views of the sea and easy access to the beautiful beach. An added bonus are the many good restaurants dotted along the boardwalk.

we have walked across the marshes over many years and it is a lovely experience which we repeat every year. There are a number of routes that you can take including one that takes you back to the harbour
