Love the boardwalk, we enjoy our walk on the beach & then onto the boardwalk. Got some lovely pictures & one of them is now hanging from my office wall.

“sand dunes and estuary”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The sand dunes and estuary used to be reached by a long hot walk along a dirt track to get to the fabulous deserted end of the Alvor beach - its now much more accessible with the boardwalk but still retains the natural look and no shops or bars - visiting in October its just perfect and we have sat and watched the sky divers coming down in the airfield and the flying wings in the estuary. Beautiful view across to Lagos and back to the boats in Alvor.

“Lovely to wander....”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

along this board walk. We took a good morning to wander along, it meanders off in different directions, we followed it to the end of the particular one we took and it came to a estuary, locals picking clams etc and had views to die for. Can see the attraction for runners/bike riders etc. Really was lovely place to meander along, looking at the crabs that scampered about below.
