Create an itinerary including Alvor Boardwalk
Take the long, wooden Alvor Boardwalk through a rich estuary ecosystem teeming with wildlife, plants, and natural sights. Walk past large sand dunes and stroll along a zone of salt lakes, lagoons, and marshes. You'll pass traditional farmland to find spots sought after for shellfish--look for fishermen catching their food by a small country lighthouse. The 3 km (1.9 mi) boardwalk can also be used for cycling, running, and bird watching. It is connected to an additional 2.2 km (1.4 mi) of dirt and gravel trails, some of which will lead you to traditional restaurants. Using our custom trip planner, Portimao attractions like Alvor Boardwalk can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • An excellent walk with beautiful scenery. Very flat, and easy for people with mobility issues. Lovely views of the local area, and a stunning sunset.

  • Fantastic boardwalk with fantastic scenery. Lots of nature to be seen birds crabs beetle etc
  • What a lovely spot, went to see birds but also a great walk and well laid out boardwalk and paths.
  • Absolutely wonderful, long, taken care of wooden/raised boardwalk along dunes. Enjoy the views and stop for a rest in one of pergolas. In the end one can reach the long and beautiful sand beach, which is much less crowded than in front of the main entrance.
  • Go here for a lovely walk on the board walk. The scenery is beautiful.
  • The raised walk path is ideal for all ages, good access to the beach, it does need a bit of repair here and there.
