Slow life

This is a great destination for families and children as it is a family focused town. The beaches are safe with clean and calm waters. Are you passionate about history? Alvor’s history dates back to the 4th century BC. The port was very prosperous during Roman occupation and the became Al-bur. The earthquake in 1755 obliterated the place and did the greatest damage to the village and its castle, which is now a children’s play park. But you still can visit the 16th century parish church, Igreja do Divino Salvador. Need a bit of action? Practice some watersports, horse riding in Mexilhoeira Grande or canoeing on Ria Alvor. But if you are looking for relax and sun, take a short pleasant walk to Alvor beach, a vast expanse of golden sand with pristine appearance as there is a very little tourist development on the beachfront.

Want to see a submarine shaped rock? You can swim out around the corner of it and you’ll discover another inviting cave perfect to explore the secrets held within.
