Profile: Alvor

Profile: Alvor

Alvor is best explored on foot, so enjoy a stroll along its scenic boardwalk linking the beaches with the old town. Wander through narrow streets lined with quirky boutiques, passing the 16th-century church of Divino Salvador, to the harbor, where the scent of sizzling sardines is impossible to resist.

The warm, shallow waters of the Alvor lagoon, on the Algarve’s western seaboard, lend themselves to water sports. Plenty of schools offer lessons, and once a year the village is hit by a wave of kitesurfing enthusiasts as the world’s leading boarders compete for some of the sport’s top prizes.
