Great place for a morning walk. It has been extended since the last time I was in Alvor. Don’t leave Alvor without taking it in.

This is so lovely as walking on the sand is tiring and difficult if dressed to go out for the evening. This provides a safe and delightful means of getting into town and experiencing the wonderful sounds of the ocean, whatever time of day or...More

We spent one afternoon walking on the beach. It was very sunny but extremely breezy day. Despite this, both our children (age 5 and 9) thoroughly enjoyed playing in the sand. The beach is not crowded in April and that’s the best part we love...More

Wow what an impressive piece of decking, it seems to go on for ever. Plenty of different twists and turns so you can come back another day and walk another route. I started by the harbour and walked the rout across a wildlife sanctuary and...More

The boardwalk is amazing. Straight out of the hotel and runs for miles into town, out to the lighthouse and back to the 3 sisters the other way.

Great place to walk, take in the sea & beach scenery & stop for refreshments. The broad walk goes from one end of the beach to the estuary approx 2/3 miles. Good for walking, cycling & wheelchairs.

Breezy, varied walk with views of beaches and an estuary. Wind surfers to watch, boats to admire, wildlife to spot (though not much as there might be if there were fewer people about) Toddlers manage this ok though watch out for idiot cyclists. Suspect this...More

I think you are referring to time of your versus time of day. Spring or fall really when the migrating birds pass thru this area on their path. I prefer spring
