Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The beach of Alvor, near Portimão, has one of the largest pedestrian walkways in the Algarve linking the estuary of the Alvor river to the sea in an idyllic landscape.

On an afternoon of autumn, spring or a summer day walking through this pedestrian walkway is almost mandatory when visiting Alvor, located near Portimão. On one of these afternoons wee visit this that it's known as one of the longest walkways in the Algarve. The Alvor Passadiços has a length of six kilometers (almost 4 miles) and connects the Três Irmãos beach to the Alvor river along the dunes and the river.

 It is the ideal place to walk, run or cycle and enjoy the landscape that is an "oasis of nature" located in an area of enormous urban pressure.

Pratical Guide


When to visit

Walking on this walkway is easy because it's in relatively flat terrain. We suggest visiting all year round but avoiding the hottest hours. Enjoy these hours to bathe in the excellent waters of the adjacent beaches.

How to visit

Alvor is close to Portimão city being one of the most tourist areas of the Algarve. If you are staying in a hotel near Alvor it will not be difficult to reach Alvor beach. However, in the middle of summer, if you are far from Portimão / Alvor, take the A22 and exit at Alvor.

By plane you should travel to Faro airport.
