Create an itinerary including Alvor Boardwalk
Take the long, wooden Alvor Boardwalk through a rich estuary ecosystem teeming with wildlife, plants, and natural sights. Walk past large sand dunes and stroll along a zone of salt lakes, lagoons, and marshes. You'll pass traditional farmland to find spots sought after for shellfish--look for fishermen catching their food by a small country lighthouse. The 3 km (1.9 mi) boardwalk can also be used for cycling, running, and bird watching. It is connected to an additional 2.2 km (1.4 mi) of dirt and gravel trails, some of which will lead you to traditional restaurants. Using our custom trip planner, Portimao attractions like Alvor Boardwalk can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • An excellent walk with beautiful scenery. Very flat, and easy for people with mobility issues. Lovely views of the local area, and a stunning sunset.
