“A great addition to Alvor”
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.

“Needs developing.....”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

It needs to be developed to enable you to walk into the town as at present the boardwalk disappears and you are then walking in the sand!!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a fabulous place for an evening walk or if you fancy a break from sunbathing. The wildlife is amazing, one of our favourite places in Alvor.

“Lovely walk”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The boardwalk starts in the harbour in Alvor and follows the river and beach all around. There are loads of different paths to take and some great views, it goes on for miles. Places to sit also as well as shelters.

“Stunning scenery”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

A real gem. A lovely pathway through the sand-dunes - stunning views - lovely beach restaurants near the beginning. Don't come to ALvor and miss this!
