Alvor Boardwalk, Alvor

(4.8/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • My first impression of the Alvor Beach, the area stretches as far as the continuing of the wooden pedestrian bridge saw, was that, can this be true! Insane! Then, when at one point the person to roll in his chair and a woman with a stroller, I understood that the pedestrian bridge was quite a convenient solution. The beach consists of a job have a lovely view over the area, as well as soisesta and breezy kosteikosta, which offers great opportunities for bird watching. In December last year the day was, however, a disappointment for the birds, even if favourable terrain riittikin. The tourists were on the move a lot, and a pedestrian bridge looked like a pleasant, especially lenkkeilijöitä and cyclists. And after all, it is a place of very beautiful!
