The village of Alvor and its superb long open sandy beach with many restaurants and rolling sand dunes that back onto the lagoon is a short 10 minutes drive. The famous Henry Cotton Championship Golf Course at Penina is just at the end of the road, and within a 20 minutes are the courses of Vale da Pinta and Gramacho, Morgado, Alto, Palmares and Boavista.
Alvor village itself is a maze of narrow streets, it is a charming village of white houses perched on a hill below the church and overlooking the lagoon and sand dunes. A few of the old local fishermen still clean their catch by the old fish market and meet up with their friends to chat away the hours. During the day Alvor is a sleepy seaside village but by night there is quite a vibrant scene, with many diverse bars and restaurants touting their wares. You can choose anything from shellfish prepared at the table, via a great Italian restaurant to a pie and a pint! After all this wining and dining there are 2 taxi ranks to get you home safely.
