A great seaside walk suitable for all ages and abilities. It needs to be regularly maintained and loose boards repaired. Lots of friendly people, sand-dunes, sea views, breezes, sun and handy restaurants selling great food, wine and coffee at reasonable prices. The dog walkers should be encouraged to clean up after their dogs and not leave their poo in the... More

This is among the best boardwalks I've seen. Well built...great scenery...wide and very safe. Not just a single walking path...but multiple paths along the boardwalk leading in all directions. Would have been sorry if I missed this while in Algarve, Portugal. No dog feces and no smell. Avoid the heat of the day and bring water.

This is away from the restaurants etc...can be reached by walking down the main street of Alvor past the Sports bar etc a turn left once you reach the waters edge. You will see in the distance a wooden restaurant on stilts..that is your pointer. The walk itself is lovely with various flora and fauna grabbing your attention since it... More

This is a nice walk, and ideal for our toddler who we could just let run along the boardwalk, because there are railing guards on either side. The boardwalk actually splits off in different directions so you can take a short route if you wish and you don't have to walk the whole thing.

A lovely walk among the sand dunes and lovely to see the locals and holiday makers enjoying it. It will even be better when it is extended as they intend to do!

The boardwalk begins at the small harbour and extends up the side of the estuary and on to the beach area. Take a gentle stroll and enjoy the abundant flora and fauna before walking on the beautiful long beach. There are cafes and restaurants to enjoy after your walk. This is a truly tranquil area and well worth experiencing. Highly... More

Liked Everything. Walk as far as you like and detour for a coffee or a beer at the beach restaurants looking out at the Atlantic Ocean.
