With a sweeping crescent-shaped beach and year-round warm weather, holidays to Alvor, Algarve definitely do not disappoint. Its sandy shores are ideal for those who like their getaways to be relaxed, affordable and brimming with Portuguese charm - not to mention a destination that’s got something to offer every member of the family!
Holidays to Alvor, Algarve, are unique because of the sheer variety of things there are to do. One of the main attractions of Alvor is the unmistakable Praia do Alvor, a long stretch of sandy beach that’s perfect for sunbathing, gentle walks, or making a splash in the sea. Alvor also sits by protected marshlands, making it an ideal place for people who love long walks and spotting the local wildlife.
Based in the western Algarve area, Alvor holidays will position visitors within close proximity of other areas of interest, including Lagos, with its thriving nightlife and photogenic coastline, and the picturesque port city of Portimão. If you hire a car, it’s even possible to explore parts of The South West Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, which runs down the western coast of Portugal. With dramatic clifftop scenery and stretches of quiet beaches, it’s the perfect day trip for those seeking a quieter part of the Algarve. With so much to explore outside, it’s good to know that Alvor holidays are a good idea all-year-round. During the summer months, the temperature doesn’t reach as scorching highs as other Portuguese resorts - usually hovering around the early 20°Cs - making it possible to head out to explore the local area. Between November and March, temperatures still average out in their teens, giving you a well-received dose of vitamin D!
