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.
