The Algarve resort of Alvor is a great choice for couples and families seeking a relaxed and slow paced break. Alvor’s highlight is undoubtedly its enormous beach, backed by crumbling cliffs. Just a short walk to the East, you find Praia Dos Três Irmãos, one of the Algarve’s most stunning coves, and a great place to splash in the waves.
Alvor also boasts a large river front area, offering an alternative place to spend a quiet day watching the boats go by. Its town has plenty to offer in the ways of bars, cafes and restaurants, most of which are relaxed and low-key. This isn’t a clubbing town, which is exactly the reason why it suits those seeking a more relaxed break.
However, large family groups need not despair: Alvor sits almost equidistant between the large resorts of Lagos and Praia de Rocha, both great places for a livelier night out. This great location is equally useful for those who want the perfect base from which to take day trips to explore more of Portugal.
Portugal’s highest mountain, Foia, is also just a quick drive away for those who fancy making the climb. Those who’d rather just enjoy the views can drive to the top instead!
