Alvor is a picturesque seaside resort and fishing village in the Algarve. There are loads of hotels and restaurants catering to families however the town gets quite crowded during the summer.
The buildings are mainly low rise and the old world charm of the village has been retained. The old town is picturesque with its narrow cobbled streets that lead down to the harbour. Praia de Alvor is the riverfront in Alvor has been done up in recent years and is now fully paved and lined with palm trees and several beach bars. There is a small playground in the centre of the old town which is shaded.
