Алвор

Alvor locates 5 km west from Портимао, и не намного дальше от Лагос as well. In past fishing village became a cosy resort laying surrounded with a wide long beach and a wide river. The river gives a safe place for boats and change it looks dependably on tides.

In low tide, the sea level goes down and the bottom of the river dries out. People gather sea animals , which are popular in restaurants of Algarve. Interesting fact: in the gulf still laying Roman ruins of Quinta da Abicada.

Alvor also has a nice old town, Marginal promenade near the river (“Calçadão marginal” by the river), castle ruins (Castelo de Alvor) from 7 century, authentic old churches, sports activities like diving, kitesurf, etc.

Natural Reserve of river Alvor

River Alvor translates to Portuguese as Ria Alvor. The river creates a special environment for wildlife. Lands around are now protected and have wooden walk passes, which are wheelchair accessible. Each between 2 and 5 km.

Дощатый настил разделен на несколько участков разной длины для прогулок по рекам, солончакам и дюнам. Удивительно прогуляться по удобному деревянному перевалу, осматривая болотистые территории, переходящие в пустынные дюны у океана. Прекрасный вид на заповедник, который стоит прогуляться. Есть 4 перевала, которые ведут к пляжу, и еще несколько, чтобы посмотреть на реку.

Здесь приветствуются не только прогулки, но и велосипеды, некоторые маршруты даже удвоены велосипедными дорогами. Также есть возможность взять напрокат велосипед.

Where to start, location

The nearest train station is too far away from the Alvor, its in Portimao. Though there some buses from Portimao, which you can check здесь. Bus 15 even comes to the trail, stop “Desportivo de Alvor”, other busses come quite close also.

Parking place locates здесь and from this point you can go into the marsh and dunes or by the bank of the river with border walk. On the google maps you also can find it as “Passadiços de Alvor”, which translates as footbridges of Alvor.

The border river walk has some cafes. In any case the center of Alvor with a lot of shops and restaurants is very nearby.

Right time for visiting

Visiting the walking passes check the tides. In Algarve tides are very strong, and view depends a lot on them. In high tide you’ll see a lot of waters, in low tide territories will look more like the marsh, the river also will be small.

Don’t forget to visit the ocean beach, you can choose the shortest or the longest trail to it, which can take around 1 hour.
