Alvor on the Algarve

It was another beautiful day here in the Algarve.  A nice sunny day and 62 degrees (17 celcius) takes us out to explore another amazing beach!

Only about 6 miles away, Alvor was our destination today.  The fishing village of Alvor is situated on the estuary of the river, Rio Alvor.  But we chose to walked along Alvor’s main beach, Praia de Alvor.

We walked part of the long stretch of golden sand backed by sand dunes and cliffs where there is no shortage of decent cafes and bars.

We had lunch at the Windsurf Snack Bar and Restaurante where if you like, you can choose your fresh fish as you enter the patio dining.

Lunch today was a monk fish soup for Stijn

And a shellfish salad full of mussels, clams, and shrimp for me!

Wonderful food and a fantastic view!

I see many more days ahead, just like this one!

There are more pictures to see at "Where's Debbie". Just click on the album "Alvor"


  1. Beautiful, Debbie. One thing we love when we go to the beach in NC is the fresh seafood... There's just nothing better!!!!! Your pictures are wonderful.

  2. This is an absolutely beautiful beach, made even more so by the cold temperatures we have this morning. That restaurant looks wonderful as well.

  3. What a cool place to spend the new year! That food is to die for! I think I'd put on a few pounds but I guess you can walk it off along that beautiful beach. Thanks for stopping by and have a great new year...wherever you may be!!


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I love reading your comments!

Have a Fabulous Day!
