Well worth the effort and time to meander along the seafront without having to struggle through piles of sand. Various get off places and really good beach to boot. Well recommended.

Ideal way to stroll along the beach,without getting in the way of the sunbathers. Take your time and stop off at the many cafés and restaurants enroute. Terrific views over the beach to sea and over the marina area.

The boardwalks offer miles of walk and are never too crowded. Early morning or evening they offer a great stroll opportunity and were a really positive part of our holiday experience in Alvor

Fab spot for a walk , cycle or run. Dotted with restaurants along the way. Runs along the back of the beach. Also a lovely loop around the marina.
