Enjoy views of one of Alvor's most popular and scenic places, the river front and the river estuary of the "Rio Arade", where there is always an array of boats, including the colourful, traditional Algarve fishing boats. See what the Alvor beaches are like, "Praia de Alvor" (Alvor Beach) and "Praia dos Três Irmãos" ("Three Brothers' Beach" because of the rock formations).
