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!

Hit The Water

 

 

Hit The Water

There’s no doubt that holidays to Alvor mostly centre around the beach. But that doesn’t have to be restricted to sunbathing; in fact, various companies around Alvor offer up boat trips around the coastline, towards Lagos’ secret caves and up the river to historic Silves. There’s even the possibility of spotting dolphins while you’re out at sea! Take your pick from a variety of boats and tour lengths; there’s everything from speed boats to classic Portuguese sailing cargo vessels that have been modified to suit tourists. One of the most popular tours is a sunset boat trip that takes in views of Alvor after twilight; and which is best enjoyed with a glass of Champagne in hand!

Meet Wildlife At Ria De Alvor

 

Meet Wildlife At Ria De Alvor

For a taste of Portuguese wildlife, don’t miss a trip to Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. Whether you’re a walking enthusiast, a bird watcher or an animal lover, the Alvor Estuary provides a year-round spot for peaceful exploration - and is also the residence of many flamingos. The wooden boardwalk allows you to explore parts of the 1454 hectares without trampling on the wildlife, and it also makes it accessible for all! If you’re lucky enough to visit during spring or autumn, keep your eyes peeled for migrating birds - and during summer, see if you can spot any sea daffodil flowers sprouting up from the desert floor.

 
Go Skydiving

 

Go Skydiving

Skydiving is something that’s at the top of many daredevils’ bucket lists - and if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right! Skydive Algarve will pick you up from your accommodation in Alvor and take you on a tandem skydive from 10 or 15,000ft. After some comprehensive instruction you’ll leap from the plane with your instructor, ready to enjoy 360-degree views out over the Algarve before your parachute brings you safely to the ground. Get a bird’s-eye-view of the area you’re staying in, including the soft arch of Beach Três Irmãos and the Ria Alvor nature reserve.

 
Historic Castle Of Alvor

 

 

Historic Castle Of Alvor

Love a spot of history? Alvor, and its surrounding area, has got that in spades, too. The medieval Castle of Alvor was originally built in 7th century B.C., destroyed in 1189 AD, and then rebuilt in 1300. All was going well until the 1755 Lisbon earthquake which shook the castle to its current remains. Today, you can still see parts of the castle’s ruins, while kids can enjoy the playground that’s been built into the interior of the main square. For even more history, check out nearby Lagos which features an Old Town that’s still partially contained within its ancient 16th century walls.
