Cactos II

The Cactos II Restaurant is a popular additional to the Alvor bar scene and one that is sure to please the many visitors who flock to Portugal’s lovely western Algarve region every year.

On first glance, one could be forgiven for dismissing the Cactos II as a simple poolside bar, or even for not coming across it at all, located as it is in the middle of the Dunas do Alvor apartment complex.
