Alvor Boardwalk, Alvor

(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very long board walk along a 4 km beach and estuary of Alvor. Many access to the beach. Well looked after and clean! One of the best things about Alvor!  more »
