This walk is just lovely, peaceful and the views are great. You can access the beautiful golden sand easily and even take a paddle.

Fantastic walk along the Boardwalk taking in fantastic scenery...the sunshine,...meeting people....ending up at the beach restaurants for a coffee....soft drink...glass of vino..or a beer. Well worth a visit and you will enjoy!

We walked on the board walk most days on our 2 week break, very nice and peaceful. People jogging, and people just strolling along in the sunshine.

A lovely place to walk with super views and room for wildlife. Well maintained and safe. Great way to get from the town to the beach. And in low season quite a peaceful haven and plenty of paths to take leading off in different areas....More

Nicely maintained gentle walk ideal for getting about especially in the evening with the beautiful sunsets. Also helps to preserve the habitat for wildlife.

The boardwalk is a great way to walk into Alvor . It’s about 1.5 miles long . We use it every night to walk into Alvor and then back to our hotel . Good exercise and nice to have a walk after a meal ....More
