The Ria de Alvor walkways are visited by thousands of residents and visitors who use them throughout the year. The intervention will help maintain optimal conditions, ensuring a pleasant, easy, and relaxing experience while exploring the Ria’s biodiversity.

The walkways have a total length of 6km and are an essential component of the “Ao Sabor da Marénature trail, which includes wooden walkways and dirt trails that non-invasively cross marshes, small lagoons, and sections of the dune ranges within this diverse ecosystem.
