I just loved this, You dont realise how far you've walked until you look back, there are little restaurants along the way to stop, have a bite to eat or a drink or both. Your right there on the beach without actually walking on the beach, the only downfall is it needs more light at night, we were walking back... More

Went for a walk on the boardwalk it is nice but look out for the dogs mess that the dog owners leave behind as other than that it would be very nice, if it wasn't for the dogs mess I would give it 5 star

A fantastic walk along the beach or you can go along the broad walk to the Nature Reserve and then along the footpath along the estuary into Alvor even in December. All the way along there are plenty of snack bars and cafes that are open in the summer for refreshments but not during the winter.

Beautiful views along boardwalk with the option to walk on the fine soft clean white sands of the beach. Wonderful views of the rock and cliff formations, Walk at low tide when you can walk among the rock formations. Cannot upload photos at present. Walk is about 2-3 Km

A nice long scenic pathway to walk/run/cycle/skate along the beach and the dunes. Very pleasant and a great spot for some exercise.
