What à nice walk !

Along the sea, a beautiful place to recommand. A part along the river, too, toward the pier. Access is easy, you park your vehicle near by.

5km boardwalk. Very easily accessible from Pestana Hotel. Well used by walkers, runners, cyclists. Takes you to Harbour. Short cuts to areas which I felt should be advised on a board. Very accessible to beaches. Beach view only comes into sight near hotels.

The Alvor boardwalk is an excellent way to explore the beach, without struggling to walk in the soft sand, it virtually runs the full length of the beach, there are plenty of different ways around to explore more of the dunes around the harbour entrance, not forgetting the bars-restaurants also along the boardwalk. There are many exits of the walkway... More

The boardwalk is a 6km walk over the salt marsh and is wonderful. Easy to walk on so good if you are not steady on your feet! Beautiful views of the estuary and great to watch the tide come in. It was lovely to walk and not see rubbish or dog poo was so good.

Beautiful area to walk along after eating too many puddings and ice creams. First time visitors to Alvor and will return as its peaceful, restful and after a walk on a sunny windy day on the boardwalk thoroughly restored and mind completely cleared.

A great boardwalk. It's very well done, large and with several Km. It's great for a walk in the morning or just to see a great sunset

The boardwalks give excellent access to both the sunbathing beaches and the wildlife lagoon and seaside zones. They are well maintained with plenty of waste bins, seats etc. A great place for an early morning walk or jog - but watch out for the cyclists!

We visited Alvor in April 2017 and walked along the Broadwalk several times. A well constructed walkway which allows you to view the beaches with plenty of benches to just sit and take in the splendour of the views and the ambience of the area.

Great boardwalk ! Fantastic idea to build this. Great for bird watching or simply a nice stroll to the beach. It is quite long so take a bottle of water if you set out..nice coming back to the Marina for some food and to watch the sunset ..beautiful.
