We love this part of Alvor beach. You go from a vast stretch of beautiful beach to smaller stretches of sand either through holes cut through the rock by the water or by climbing over the rocks. We have noticed that there has been quite...More

Beach is stunning probably one of the best in Algarve. You can spend hours just walking around, exploring the little rock pools and the caves. Some of the little restaurants around here are also not too bad, especially if all you want is light lunch.

We found this beach on our last day and what a discovery, it's beautiful. A bit of a walk down the steps (and back up again!) But well worth it.

Beautiful charming small beach by the sea, calm with beautiful cliffs and the sound of the waves, unlike some other beach in the area there are not so many ugly concrete hotells distrupting the natural beauty. Sad to see so much plastics in the sand,...More

Walking along the beach from Alvor, we thought we had come to the end. We decided to explore the cliffs and caves and after we clambered over a few rocks we discovered the most amazing sandy cove with rugged cliffs and caves. Each time we...More

Yes, there are always taxis floating about by the beach or at the bottom of town. It’s only a few minutes to town from the beach anyway and the boardwalk makes it really accessible.

Hope you liked the beach. Missed your second question until now. We like right in front of Canico.
