Sightseeing Nightlife Adventure
Formerly a fishing village, Alvor showcases popular beaches and more secluded coves along Portugal's southern coast. Situated between a lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean west of the Algarve, this town boasts cobblestone streets, quaint restaurants, live music, boutique shops, and lively bars. All of these offerings, along with the natural beauty of its sandy shores and rocky cliffs, make this vacation spot an enticing place for a summer holiday. It is also a great base for day trips to the famed ancient towns that dot the coastline. Add Alvor and other destinations in Portugal to your travel plans using our Portugal trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Alvor

Packed with bars and restaurants serving traditional Portuguese food, Alvor's town center is also home to its prime accommodations. While not necessarily replete with options, the historical center has a number of private villas and mid-range hotels that offer affordable prices while placing the city's cobbled streets and winding alleys right at your doorstep. Or, head outside Alvor to one of the nearby residential agglomerations along the sea, where you'll find more resort-style, upscale hotels with higher price points that get you even closer to the area's pristine beaches.
