“Beautiful evening walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

We had researched our trip to Algarve before going, particulary around Alvor as that was where we stayed and had very much wanted a little stroll along the new boardwalk. We walked it on the last day of our holidays in the evening and it was really wonderful. Plenty room for our little one to not hold a hand in safety. The views are quite stunning and I was in awe of the gorgeous house perched in the middle (one day..hehe) We got some beautiful photographs from our walk. I have to say I was a little annoyed at the fact we had to side step dog mess on more than one occasion but it is still a beautiful walk, well recommended!!

“Great company”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We had a lovely time and met a very nice couple from London.
Larry was quite the aristocrat and regaled us with lots of tales of his travels. We had a splendid time and will be back like a shot!

“Well worth a walk around the boardwalks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

We enjoyed walking around the boardwalks after lunch. They were only finished a couple of months ago and, as well as providing access to the beach, you can spend an hour or so covering all of the area, whether the tide is in or out.
I went for a couple of early morning runs around the boardwalks and the beach too.
