Alvor Holidays Guide
The holiday resort of Alvor sits between Lagos and Portimao along the west end of the Algarve. As one of the Algarve’s quieter resorts, it's popular with Brits wanting to enjoy a more relaxing holiday in the Algarve. It's slightly set back from the long stretch of beautiful, sandy Praia do Alvor Poente beach but still within walking distance.
Getting to, from and around Alvor
Flying into Faro, the journey by car from Faro Airport to Alvor takes about 50 minutes and will cost in the region of €60 each way in a taxi. Being one of the quieter resorts, if you wanted to do some exploring while on holiday in Alvor, booking a hire car before you arrive is a good option. This will then give you a lot more freedom to see some of the other areas.
Alvor is a very walkable town and is very self contained with plenty of bars and restaurants to try out and a couple of supermarkets too. So a fly and flop holiday is definitely possible.
Things to do in Alvor
Alvor is a smaller town but there are still a number of things you can do here. A small marina offers a couple of boat trips and there's also a kitesurfing centre if you want to try out something a little more adventurous.
If you did want to see more of the Algarve, Portimao is a short taxi ride away and if you fancy a heavy night of dancing and drinking, Albufeira is about 30 minutes away by car.
Where to stay in Alvor
There are a couple of resort style hotels in Alvor offering kids clubs, pools and lots of other facilities which might be your preferred option if you're enjoying a family holiday. Otherwise there are a number of more residential apartment blocks and villas you can enjoy on a self catering basis.
