The new board walk is great and I had a lovely time walking along it in the sun. It's quite long so take some water with you. Also don't try and do it bare foot as I did, the wood can get very hot! I come here every year and it's just wonderful.

The Alvor Boardwalk is a jewel in the sand accessible directly from the center of the village. It takes you along the Alvor river all the way to the breakwater the guards the Alvor harbor, you have then several options to walk along the beach all the way to Praia da Rocha, or you you can take several shortcuts to...

We visited this locations for a few hours and the beach is simply stunning. As expected in Dec the sea was cold. Lots of sea shells which my wife and and son loved to seek the best ones. Expensive beach restaurant so didn't eat there. Went into the town close by and found a super pub type place that did... More

Love the boardwalk as it's easy walking and a lovely walk by the sea. It's dotted with bars and restaurants all the way along. Much easier than walking on the beach. Brilliant addition.

The boardwalks around Alvor are absolutely fabulous. Six kilometres of heaven on earth. The views over to Lagos are spectacular and the dunes are full of bird life and interesting plants and fauna. There are plenty of beach side restaurants to stop at for refreshments along the way. You might like to consider taking a hat as they are open... More

Just disappointed that we are a couple of a certain age!! Think we were overcharged, the measures were small and the bill large, we love Alvor and disappointed with the way we were treated, I cannot say a bad word about any other pun in Alvor

The boardwalk is great for those not so agile, who have difficulty walking on the beach... Great views and lovely and relaxing... Always have a wander when we visit Alvor...

We walked along here after reading some reviews and were not disappointed. The weather was perfect (21/22 degress with no wind or clouds) Would not want to do this in peak season tho as its probably crammed and not so chilled. You can walk very far along the boardwalk seeing some nature along the way wth birds, fish and crabs.... More
