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.
The course is sometimes done on the wooden structure but can also be done in well-marked paths.
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.
