Alvor, situated on a river estuary, combines its reputation as a popular holiday resort with its tradition as a fishing village. The enclosed narrow cobbled streets have kept development to a minimum. Many of these streets now boast bars with live music and different types of restaurants, however leading off from these there are still memories of the older fishing village. The originally 16th Century Parish Church was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755 and still has a prime example in its main doorway of the great craftsmanship of the Manueline era of architecture. The village is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. There is a choice of a long open sandy beach or a number of small coves tucked under the cliffs. The Alvor sunny beach is very big and very beautiful, with its fine expanse of sand and with enough waves to attract surfers.
