Ria De Alvor Portugal Reserve
If you are in need of some peace and quiet away from the bustling beach, take a stroll through Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. Witness the spectacular ecosystems and numerous plants, animals and insects. Follow the impressive boardwalk for over a mile to see the sandy dunes, swamps and lagoons that are ever changing with the seasons. The park is one of the best places to spot brightly-coloured flamingos and in the spring and autumn the reserve comes alive with flocks of birds coming to nest.
