Alvor Overview

Alvor is a picturesque little resort west of Albufeira on the sun soaked Algarve. The old town of Alvor is actually set inland on a little estuary with a broad beach running the length of the modern resort. The quaint old town has manged to retain an authentic feel despite the cafes, bars and restaurants that line the maize of cobbled streets and alleyways leading down to the modern promenade and fishing harbour.

Secluded coves and rocky inlets

The majority of the resort hotels lie outside the old town, stretched along the cliff tops that overlook the beautiful Praia do Alvor. Many of these hotels have direct access to secluded coves and rocky inlets. There are surprising little tunnels leading through the rock face linking beaches and some laid back beach cafes to keep you going during the day.

Modern promenade

The modern promenade in the old town is a great link between the town, the estuary and the sea front. There are several smart cafes and restaurants that are perfect for a drink or light lunch. You can sit and watch the local fisherman landing their catches in the ancient harbour. From here, it is a short journey to the large fish restaurants beyond the promenade. Alvor is popular with families and couples as well as golfers looking for a challenge. The Pestana Golf Academy is in the heart of the modern resort.

 

Things to do in Alvor

 

On the beach in Alvor

Your choice of beach may be dictated by the location of the hotel you choose. The large resort hotels to the east of the old town have easy access to the beaches that lie beneath the impressive cliffs. The dramatic erosion of the cliff has left lovely little sheltered coves that are perfect for families. The soft sand and gently lapping waves make for a great combination. The main beach lies beyond the old town and harbour. There is plenty of free car parking and a simple wooden boardwalk that leads through the dunes to the wide open expanse of the Praia do Alvor. The smart beachside restaurant offers a welcome retreat from the Algarve sunshine.

Top Tip:

The beach alongside the Pestana Alvor Praia Beach and Golf Hotel is perfect. You can choose from the wide open expanse of beach heading west or nip in between the rocky outcrops and enjoy the relative seclusion of the bay next door, complete with beach bar.

Eat and drink in Alvor

The beach bars and restaurants lining the sea front are likely to keep you happy during the day. Whether you want a simple sandwich or a piece of grilled fish you will find it. The old town is packed with simple cafes and restaurants serving both local and international meals. Take a walk down to the harbour and see what’s cooking on the open air charcoal grills. Fish is the obvious speciality in the area. The more popular restaurants in town have impressive roof top terraces.

Top Tip:

For a big city dining experience make the short journey to the bustling town of Portimao.

Alvor nightlife

Alvor is a family friendly resort and the choice of nightlife reflects this. There are some lovely Irish bars in and around the old town as well as a range of cocktail bars and places you can try your hand at karaoke. The cobbled streets that run down towards the estuary are busy with lively bars and restaurants that will keep you entertained into the early hours.  Nearby Praia da Rocha is the place to go for local nightclubs. It is approximately 4 miles away and easily reached by either bus or taxi.

Top Tip:

Look out for the energetic street entertainers that populate the old town during the summer months.

Shopping in Alvor

The centre of the old town is full of souvenir shops specialising in local ceramics, leather goods and jewellery. You will also find a range of supermarkets – perfect for those holiday essentials. The local market hall is worth a visit if only to take a peek at local life. The range of fresh fish and vegetables is incredible. Portimao is the place to go for larger stores and designer boutiques.

Things to see in Alvor

The old 16th century church of Igreja Matriz is worth a visit. The impressive door is a classic example of gothic architecture. A more family friendly sight is the amazing sunset over the estuary. Head down to the harbour, pull up a chair and a cold drink and watch the sun sinking into the horizon. For a day away from the resort, head west and take in the delights of Lagos. This ancient walled city is a great place to walk around and the modern marina provides a sharp contrast with the ancient streets and squares of the old town.

Top Tip:

For an authentic lunchtime experience, try the local fish market in Lagos. The top floor has a great restaurant.

 

We Recommend

 

Tropico Beach Bar Restaurante

This incredible beach restaurant is on the outskirts of the town but is only a very short taxi or nice evening walk away. The tables on the beach, the friendly service, great fish and fantastic views will make it worthwhile!

Cafe na Ria

This bar is on the harbour front and is the perfect place to sit back with a cocktail and enjoy the sun setting over the harbour. The laid back music and service are perfect for this bar sitting in the shadows of the local palm trees.

Praia do Alvor

This beautiful beach is the perfect place to spend a long sunny afternoon. Head into Alvor and look for signposts pointing you in the direction ‘Praia’. You can expect to find a long sweep of perfect sand, calm waters and a great place to grab a snack and a drink. Head to the promenade behind the beach afterwards for a stroll and sun set cocktail.

Alvor - Great for relaxation

, Belfast

We always enjoy a stay in Alvor, not too busy and a very relaxed atmosphere.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The food is too good to miss.

10/10 Amazing

quiet fishing town

, Durham

Love it, Love it, Love it. Alvor is reasonably quiet in that there's no loud night clubs and no large groups of teenagers, however I would recommend this place to anyone, there's loads of bars and restaurants, the Albar is one of the best places to eat it's central to the town and used by most of the locals, most of the bars are open til early morning. There's loads of Irish bars, most of which have live entertainment during the season, we went with the children, two boys 18 & 23, and both of them would go back again. It's also nice and central to hire a car and visit other places in the algarve, the new race track at portimao is about 20 min drive.

\still relatively quiet and accessible to pretty well everywhere along the coast

, Greystones

Great restaurant selection, especially Ruccula, Big Red's, Os Marafados. Great flights along the coast from the local airport. Try the Skydive Challenge. I did and am very glad I did. Their oldest customer (to date) was 94 years of age!! For shopping further afield, try Lagos to the west as Portimao has gone steeply downhill.

Lovely place - perfect for families

, Driffield

Alvor is a lovely town with a variety of restaurants, cafes & bars to choose from each day - Villa 45 was our favourite restaurant. The harbour is a quaint place to stroll past & the beach is excellent. We found a lovely place with rocks & caves for our little ones to explore. The play park is also a good find if you have children, very well maintained.

One of the nicest places we have ever been on holidays

, Dublin

What can I say about Alvor only that we love it. As we have children, the main part of our holiday is eating out so you could not be in a better place. If you like fish, you are in heaven. All I can say is that one restaurant is as good as the next. The Green Door is one of our favourites and is geat value, but I don't think we got a bad meal in any of the restaurants we have tried over the years. Alvor in a lovely quaint little fishing village with lots of little cobbled streets (not suitable for your highheels). I love walking down the narrow main street towards the little harbour, when the sun is going down. As for the beach it is fab. You can walk for miles. I love going down as far as the rocks and going through the caves and over the little foot bridge as you have some lovely small coves surrended by the most beautiful cliff coastline, with a little bar/restaurant set in the rocks.

Interesting village with plenty of restaurants, especially the small cabin ones on the front. Sardines a must sitting outside down near the harbour.
