Beach
“Maybe a bit turistic but a really nice village to visit not far from Portimão!”

“The restaurant and bar is set within the cliffs, right on the beach and serves fabulous food (the bar has great snacks and book at the restaurant for a wonderful meal)! They host many parties through the summer so you can dance on the beach until dawn! This place has a great beach so you can sunbathe and pop in for lunch and drinks! Access to Caniço is by an awesome lift, built into the cliff - one not to be missed!”

“Our favourite local restaurant, right at the beautiful Alvor beach. This restaurant has developed a big reputation for its typical seafood dishes and fresh fish. Everything we have tried here is delicious. Around 20€ p/ person. (If you want to have fresh fish, avoid ordering it on Mondays, as the fishermen don't go out to fish on Sundays).”

“The specialty of this restaurant it's the stone steak - the meat comes raw to the table for you to cook it on a hot stone. It comes served with delicious french fries and a 3 sauce combination. This restaurant also has great fish, as the majority of them in Alvor, being this a fisherman's village. ”
