About Alvor

Located on the western Algarve in Portugal, Alvor offers the perfect combination of traditional fishing village charm and modern resort amenities. With 200km of dramatic golden coastline, natural parks and historical sites right on its doorstep, it is not surprising that Alvor is such a popular choice for visitors from all over Portugal and beyond.


Visitors return to Alvor time and again, entranced by its traditional village charm, delightful waterfront eateries, and high quality accommodation.


This former fishing village on Portugal’s southern coast has become a popular resort. Spend a day on Alvor’s main beach, or find one of the smaller, secluded coves along the coastline. In the evening, stroll through the town’s narrow cobblestone streets, dine on fresh local seafood, and enjoy live music at one of the many lively bars.
