Introducing Alvor

The vibrant resort of Alvor fronts a wide, 2km-long expanse of pale golden sand shelving into the turquoise coloured waters of the Bay of Lagos – perfect for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.

What to do and see in Alvor

Spend the day on the gorgeous Praia do Alvor where there’s always a secluded spot to sunbathe and numerous water sport activities to keep adults and children entertained, including pedalos, banana boats, sea kayaks and catamarans.

Wander along the soft golden sands to the picture-perfect Praia dos Tres Iramos, which marks the start of a string of small beaches.

Here, separated by dramatic cliffs and towering rock formations indented with caves and tunnels, discover shallow turquoise water perfect for snorkelling and diving adventures. A cliff-top path leads to Praia do Vau – well worth the walk.

Away from the beach, wander the narrow cobblestone streets of the attractive whitewashed Old Town. Browse the countless shops, tee-off from one of the nearby golf courses or check out the exciting water rides at Aqualand.

After dark, choose from café-bars and Irish- and English-style pubs with live music. Those interested in dancing all night should head to the nightclubs of nearby Praia da Rocha.


Choose from a range of hotels including the luxurious Pestana Alvor Praia (at Praia dos Tres Irmaos), which hosts a choice of spa treatments.
