New Walkway

Hi

Has anyone any information on the new walkway between Quarteira and Vilamoura? We are going in a few weeks and wondering if it has been completed yet.

It is being used now. I personally don't understand the fuss. It has always been possible to walk between Vilamoura and Quarteira although the way as a bit rough until the recent improvements, which I have yet to see for myself.

Our walk from QUARTEIRA has bn a regular walk for many years since the days of fishermans shacks going from VILAMOURA , Last year work had started thrfore closing the route during our holiday having to go by a vry long way. however it is now open to the Public, they are now busy planting trees and shrubs plus other landscaping projects. A previous entry on this forum said it was looking good. and I cant wait to see the finished product. I believe othr changes in Vilamoura will happen since Lone Star took over.

Cubsur, if you knew Vilamoura as well as you know Albufeira then you would understand all the fuss , it has not been possible to get to Quarteira via the beach route for a long time ,the alternative via the stadium and housing estate is not quite the same ! It needed to be opened but personally I wonder what history has been lost to these improvements , was it better left alone?

Yes I missd walking passed the Fishrmans shacks and the times when the Gypsy Market was on the corner close to th ATLANTIS now the CROWNE PLAZA but now getting old and with seats on the way it would b quite pleasant, Talking about Albufeira you could always gt down to the Fishrmans Beach but its much to go down the ESCALATOR.

1984 was my first year, Its a bit further out now though its the 3rd move now, good memories of those days there was vry little around the Vilamoura Marina just one end was active, The Casino wasnt built , and we were using the Escudo.

Yes it has you can walk from Quarteira to Vilamoura in about 20 -30 minutes using the new beachside walkway, still a bit of work going on when we were there in March but quite usable.

Sorry, I didn't think to take photos when we were there last month. The walkway was fine and plants were still being planted and the garden areas being tended well.
