Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

This is the harbour of this beautiful location in the south of Portugal

I enjoyed there the traditional food, a tasty fish dish

I wish you a nice weekend !

Alvor is now a very popular holiday location the enclosed narrow streets have kept development to a minimum. Many of these streets now boast bars with live music and different types of restaurants but leading off from these there are still memories of the older fishing village. In the area are a number of holiday resorts from which the tourists enjoy visiting the town and its attractions.

The village is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. There is a choice of a long open sandy beach or a number of small coves tucked under the cliffs.

If you like having kilometres of sand all to yourself and the chance to spread your towel just where you want, then we guarantee that you’ll fall in love with the beach of Alvor.

For nightlife lovers, the lively atmospheres of Alvor and Praia da Rocha in Portimão will be ideal for you.
