“Beautiful Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Gorgeous walk round the nature reserve of Alvor. A wildlife haven set in natural sand dunes with the sea to one side and river to the other. Did this walk everyday at high tide and enjoyed watching the wildlife plus entertained by around 30 kite surfers on the river

“Good for walking but running is tricky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The popularity among walkers makes it difficult if you want to go a little quicker. For walking you can do a good 4km on a nice surface with lovely views. The boardwalk also accesses the beach so you can finish your walk with a little dip or walk back on the sand.

“A great addition to Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This board walk takes from the town harbor all around the estuary and down to the breakwater. There are off shoots to take you to different parts of the beach and some bars. There is also a sand path for those who wish to run or cycle. It makes the daily walk a lot easier than it used to be.
