The Alvor area guide
Things to do
An idyllic fishing village, Alvor is located on the estuary of the River Alvor in the Algarve region of Portugal, just a bit inland from the ocean. Much of the village’s life revolves around its harbour, with its rows of vibrantly coloured fishing boats and waterfront cafés.
Although a good deal of the town was lost in the 1755 earthquake, you can still catch glimpses of its lengthy history in the area surrounding the central Praça da República. Historic sites include a sixteenth-century church, featuring decorative fishing rope carvings, as well as the ruins of the old Alvor castle.
The town beach, Praia de Alvor, is another star attraction for residents and visitors alike. This section of sandy scenery is sandwiched between the lagoon of the River and the salty waters of the Atlantic. Amenities include sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, restaurants, and water sports facilities for pedalos, windsurfing and sailing.
Within the town itself, the pedestrianised centre is enjoyable to wander, with its narrow network of quaint streets featuring charming shops and cafés. Here you can see the ruins of Alvor Castle, or the impressive Manueline and Rococo architecture of the Church of the Divine Saviour.
The village offers close proximity to many other top attractions in the Algarve, including the Slide and Splash water park in nearby Lagos, fishing excursions and cave exploration. You can also go dolphin watching or take a canoe trip down the Alvor River.
Places to eat
Diners in Alvor are spoilt for choice, with everything from Chinese to Spanish tapas available. Seafood is the local specialty and the town’s harbour area is an ideal spot to sample the freshest fish while watching the sunset.
Top choices in this area include Ruccula Restaurant or A Lota Restaurant, famed for its lobster and harbour views. The Salsa Bistro in the town centre is another tempting option, with quirky décor and a loyal clientele. Venture to Big Red’s for a sumptuous selection of steak and ribs, or to one of the two Indian Hut locations for something a bit different.
You’ll find many of the traditional wares that the Algarve is famous for on offer in Alvor, including embroidery and linen, jewellery and hand-painted ceramics. These are available in the numerous tourist shops and small boutiques peppering the town centre.
You can also venture to the central Alvor market for the freshest, most colourful exotic fruit and local vegetables. The fish market is a must-visit for the catch of the day. In town, there is the supermarket, Pingo Doce, and you’ll find a wide selection of larger shopping malls like Aqua Portimão and the Continente Shopping Centre in nearby Portimão.
Getting there & around
Positioned on Portugal’s southern coast, Alvor offers a number of convenient transport links. The closest airport is located in Faro, where you can book an airport transfer, hire a car, or find a bus service. Renex is a local company offering routine services from Faro to Alvor, and Eva Transportes offers services throughout the Algarve region and stops in nearby Portimão.
From here, the Vai e Vem Citybus provides local services into Alvor. The nearest train station is also located in Portimão, providing links to Faro and onward to Porto or Lisbon. A taxi stand is located within Alvor’s centre, but the city is easily walkable and mainly pedestrianised.
