Easy walk, not too busy. Good for people watching and just chatting and walking. Plenty of diners and bars. Good for checking out the scenery. Every person that you pass is very polite

Walked the full length of the boardwalk during our stay in Alvor. The views are stunning plus lots of eating places.

Relaxing walk. Quiet beach. Just lovely. Accessible with buggy & beach was quiet enough for our one year old to have a scramble about without disturbing others. We plan to return.
