  • I love this beach and and that more frequent! Easy parking, good access. Very clean and cared for only has the problem of being a bit windy in the afternoon.

  • Alvor is the most amazing beach I've ever visited, and I've seen hundreds of Portuguese beaches. It's gorgeous. It's clean. Water is clear, perfect for photos, not too crowded. It's a 10, not a 5 star beach.
  • Amazing coves & beaches with caves & arches in the rocks. Breaking waves very forceful but easy to swim once beyond them.
  • Beautiful beach but the surrounding area is filled with terrible big buildings and lots of tourists.
  • Beautiful place, long clean beaches.
  • Fabulous very clean beautiful views

Where to stay in Portimao

As one of the Algarve's most populous urban centers, Portimao offers plenty of choices for accommodations. Check into one of the upscale hotels along the beach south of the city center for easy access by foot to the surf and sand. Since these lodgings usually are equipped with pools, spas, and amenities, they can be on the pricey side. For something a little more affordable and farther away from the beachside bustle, try one of the smaller, mid-range hotels or locally run guesthouses available in the city center, particularly those in the more residential neighborhoods south of the train station along the Arade River.
