Praia details rocha

Hi

Please can anyone advise is it worth visiting pdr from alvor for a day? We are going for 2/52 in Sept hope to visit portimao and lagos but won't be hiring a car so probably looking at buses or taxi especially if we decide to go to pdr or is it very touristy? Thanks for your answers

Some areas of pdr are in my opinion run down. The beach is stunning. The marina end is very nice. There is a beach and pool club where you can hang out need to buy drinks or food mind. You can take the short water taxi over to Ferragudo too

Hi eledarenrut , If you're coming to Alvor because you like the look of it then I would suggest that you would not like Praia de Rocha , or " Pride of Russia " as I once heard it called . It is the exact opposite of Alvor ... loud , brash , over-commercialised , people trying to sell you sunglasses , baseball caps , tee shirts , even drugs , in the street . Ok , it's a top resort , that's why it's like it is , and personally I would much rather take a stroll along the boardwalk and have a quiet drink in one of Alvor's many bars . This is obviously only my opinion , but you did ask the question . Anyway , hope you enjoy Alvor , and anywhere else you decide to visit .
