Alvor is an attractive fishing village in the midst of holiday apartments and large private villas with a wide choice of restaurants, bars, small shops and holiday activities. These focus on 2 areas: the harbour- lagoon area of the Rio Alvor estuary and the extensive, clean, sandy beach and dunes that eventually lead to typical Algarve coves and rock formations as you move east towards Praia da Rocha and Portimao. Boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin watching trips are available at the harbour area. There are public tennis courts and an indoor swimming pool by the harbour and new fishermans huts - this is still a fishing village with fish market. Aqualand, Zoo Marine and similar attractions are within 35min drive. Or visit the historic towns of Lagos and Silves.
The local beaches are clean, sandy and protected from over development. They have all modern facilities-sunloungers, parasols for hire and cafes, bars and restaurants. Or walk a short distance and find long stretches away from it all. There are classic Algarve coves with cliffs and rock formations to explore. Restaurants include traditional Portuguese and seafood, Italian, Indian ,and Chinese. India Hut 1 is an authentic treat. There are restaurants next to Vila Marachique (recommend Por do Sol) or go into Alvor and stroll around the small old town until you find your favourite. Try Casa da Rio with a wonderful view across the harbour to the dunes beyond. Bars include Irish and sports bars but most are Portuguese style -often with a cafe and snacks available. Try those at the square at the top of the hill or by the new market, for a light lunch or coffee, cakes and cold drinks during the day. Outdoor dining and roof terraces with sunset views are the norm.
