Alvor is a typical Portuguese fishing village, much calmer than the busier tourist resorts of the Algarve and perfect for those looking for a peaceful break in a beautiful location.
The town dates back to the 8th century Moorish occupation when it was considered an important strategic port. You will notice that many hotels and building names around Alvor feature the name ‘Dom Joao II’, this is because the 15th Century King Joao II, who was famous for reinstating the Portuguese exploration of Africa, passed away in the town.
More than anything Alvor is renowned for its natural beauty. Its beaches with their golden sands, calm waters and beautiful natural features are popular with visitors and locals alike. The Praia do Alvor is the most famous stretches over 2 miles and the Praia Tres Irmãos, located to the east of the beach, is particularly lovely with its unique rock formations and rock pools. The beaches are perfect for swimming and sunbathing, and also offer sailing, water-skiing and wind-surfing.
Despite Alvor being a quieter village you can still find restaurants, bars and dancing on the Rua dos Bares.
The Algarve, which is Portugal’s southernmost province, is a 150 km long coastal region of outstanding beauty, long golden beaches, dramatic sandstone cliffs, picturesque villages and undulating landscape covered with fig, almond and olive trees. Rich in history, the Algarve is noted for the friendliness of its people and its mild climate, which is ideal for outdoor sports almost all year around.
