Europe,  Portugal

One of the biggest pedestrian walkways in the Algarve

On an afternoon in autumn, spring or summer day walking through this pedestrian walkway is almost mandatory when visiting Alvor, located near Portimão.

On one of these afternoons, we visit what it’s known as one of the longest walkways in the Algarve. The Alvor Passadiços has a length of six kilometres (almost 4 miles) and connects the Três Irmãos beach to the Alvor River along the dunes and the river.

 The course is sometimes done on a wooden structure but can also be done on well-marked paths.

 It is the ideal place to walk, run or cycle and enjoy the landscape that is an “oasis of nature” located in an area of enormous urban pressure.

Practical guide

When to visit

Walking on this walkway is easy because it’s on relatively flat terrain. We suggest visiting all year round but avoiding the hottest hours. Enjoy these hours to bathe in the excellent waters of the adjacent beaches.

How to visit

Alvor is close to Portimão city that it´s one of the most tourist areas of the Algarve. If you are staying in a hotel near Alvor it will not be difficult to reach Alvor beach. However, in the middle of summer, if you are far from Portimão / Alvor, take the A22 and exit at Alvor.

By plane, you should travel to Faro airport.

Plan your trip using the following tools and/or website

Using the following links and tools on the website you are helping to maintain Scannertrip. This use is the same for you and you do not pay more for it. For Scannertrip it makes all the difference!!

  • To find the best stays use Booking. It is one of the best websites for booking stays and always with some promotions on some destinations. The reliability and ease of booking and cancelling make it even the most popular. 
  • To compare prices for your Stays you can use the Hotels Combined or hotellook. These search engines show different prices from other websites for the same destination. There may possibly be a lower price for the same hotel on another website and these search engines will show it.
  • If you need to fly, search for flights on a price comparator. We recommend the jetradar or the Kiwi.
  • When you are preparing what to do at your destination, you will obviously search for activities to occupy you. Use this activity comparator in the scannertrip provided by Musement, or tiqets or the civitatis.
  • Transfers to and from the airport can be purchased via the website kiwitaxi. So you don’t need to get in touch with the different companies in your destination looking for the best price.
  • If you choose to rent a car, also use the price comparators. The autoeurope website compares prices from different rental companies.
