We have excellent walks on the boardwalk. It is level and wide. There are a number of nice restaurants by the side of it. A very pleasant way into town from the hotel.

My wife and I really enjoyed this lengthy boardwalk, lovely views across the harbour and bay. Various combinations to do shorter options. We walked to the end and back along the beach until we could re-join the board walk. Would be nice in Summer when...More

This very long boardwalk along Alvor's gorgeous beach is in excellent condition and a wonderful feature for everyone, especially anyone with mobility challenges. I believe it will be the reason many return year after year to Alvor. Loved it!

An easy boardwalk through the coastal dunes at Alvor. Can return via the shore of the lagoon or walk back along the beautiful wide sandy beach. Plenty of good restaurants in Alvor after you have worked up an appetite.

A quiet stroll along a well designed boardwalk in a nature reserve. Make of it what you will but a relaxing experience with the added advantage of some helpful information boards. Nothing spectacular but a lovely 'low key' experience (and close to the beach)

This is an incredible amenity. To be able to stroll for kilometres along the boardwalk watching birds, butterflies and fantastic scenery is an absolute treasure of an asset to any community. Along the way are dotted lots of little spots to stop for tea/coffee and...More

The wooden boardwalk in Alvor is the longest I have ever seen. It will take you through the dunes, the expansive sandy stretch of clean and pristine beaches, the marshes and the river, where one can enjoy the shore birds playing or feeding. Close to...More

It will seem like 10 minutes walk as the view is unreal.
