Excellent feature in the natural beauty of Alvor. We walked the new boardwalk to get to the beach but we could have walked most of the day watching the wildlife.

The boardwalks give varied good solid walking to the beach (sands) and a lovely walk, jog around the quaint fishing village.

Returned to Alvor after first visit a year later and stumbled upon the boardwalk. Took a leisurely stroll and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quiet unspoiled beautiful views....Walked for ages, rested on benches and took in the blue skies with the sound of the water gently lapping, just writing this review has transported me back again....legs were aching the next day due to not realising how far we walked, it was all good and hey counteracted some of the effects of the good food we ate that week. Recommend highly!

we came back to Alvor after 3 years and the addition of the boardwalk was a very pleasant surprise. No watering holes on the way so you do need to carry drinks but we liked the fact that you could veer off to go on to the beach. It was so quiet and watching the birds and the alternative view of Alvor is worth the walk. One query how are they going to treat the wood year in year out!!!!
