The board walk streches from the pestana pria to outsckirts of the town . Runs parallel to the beach , many beach diners/bars dotted along the way . Great walk with fab Views of beach on one side & hotels on other .

Very useful for walking from the beach to the centre of Alvor. Beautiful for walking down in the evenings too - we actually got engaged during one of our walks! It can be quite windy though so hold onto your hats!
