Each week up to two walks are organised in the Silver coast region of Portugal.

Every Wednesday we hold a short walk (max 7 km) and on alternate Fridays we hold a long walk (10 to 20 km).

Everyone is welcome to join a walk, you can do a voluntary donation to cover costs of organisation.

People walk at their own risk. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept under control. In summer time we normally start at 10:00, in winter time normally at 10:30.
Of course you can do the walks on your own as well. Just download the gpx file.

    The Walk

    Walk with fine views along the coast and inland

    The walk is through high, open countryside along the cliff top – for most of the route the cliff slopes fairly gently to the sea. There will be fine views along the coast and inland – visibility permitting. The ground is firm, but uneven in places.


    The walk is about 5 km and is expected to take about 2 hrs
