Create an itinerary including Alvor Boardwalk
Take the long, wooden Alvor Boardwalk through a rich estuary ecosystem teeming with wildlife, plants, and natural sights. Walk past large sand dunes and stroll along a zone of salt lakes, lagoons, and marshes. You'll pass traditional farmland to find spots sought after for shellfish--look for fishermen catching their food by a small country lighthouse. The 3 km (1.9 mi) boardwalk can also be used for cycling, running, and bird watching. It is connected to an additional 2.2 km (1.4 mi) of dirt and gravel trails, some of which will lead you to traditional restaurants. Using our custom trip planner, Portimao attractions like Alvor Boardwalk can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Nice and long walk in the sun. Takes you from the start of the beach to Alvor town. Only walked by day so didn't experience it in the dark.

  • Go here for a lovely walk on the board walk. The scenery is beautiful.
  • Nice scenic walk with a nice breeze in the morning. Walk out to the boulders and back by the beach takes about an hour and 20 minutes.
