New Year In Alvor

Can anyone tell me how busy Alvor is at New Year and if many of the restaurants/bars are still open? Thanks

Very quiet and just a few bars still open. Can't re-call if all the restaurants stayed open while i was there

Hi Helen I am off to Alvor for new year this year and I am reliable told that the bars and restaurants are being paid/given incentives to stay open, so fingers crossed it should be pretty busy and if its anything like last year the weather should be pretty decent, certainly better than it will be in the UK!! :)

Thank you very much for your replies, as long as there are some bars and restaurants open then its worth considering a visit.

I've a friend who has gone over for the New Year for the last few years in a row. There's always a few places open, but you will need to book in advance for dinner on New Year's Eve.

I'd love to go over myself, but I have to be back at work by the second working day in January at the latest and the cost of flights is prohibitive.

Thank you Paul. Yes the flight prices are the main problem, looks to be far cheaper to go on Boxing Day!!
