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

A lot of money has clearly been spent on creating this long wooden walkway across the dunes and around the edge of the estuary. This is a lovely place to walk and the views of the ria, the beach and also across towards Lagos are superb.
