The town of Alvor was a fishing village from its start and soon became a port of reference due to its natural breakwater in the cove. Despite the fact that there are no buildings dating back to that historical period, the quaint city centre certainly deserves a thorough visit. It is made up of typically Portuguese alleys where white predominates, mixing with pastel decorations and brick features.

Dozens of typical restaurants offer food of every kind and of every ethnic origin. In the summer evenings, you can eat outside in the restaurants that prepare local fish specialties or you can choose from the numerous international gastronomic delights and live music venues.

Alvor Bay includes a beautiful seafront promenade where dozens of medium-sized boats are moored, providing views of the estuary and Ocean. The surrounding lagoon is a very important heritage for the local ecosystem as it hosts a great variety of migratory birds that nest on its coasts that have been putting on a show of enchanting beauty for centuries.
