The Walk

A walk by the cliff top and woods at Boa Vista

A walk by the cliff top and woods at Boa Vista near to the Estrada Atlântica between Foz do Arelho and Salir do Porto.

 We will walk a short distance along the Estrada Atlântica (a fast but not busy road) then follow a track to the cliff edge. This track can be muddy and slippery following rain. We continue back to the Estrada Atlântica and cross it to descend into Cidade and then along quiet roads to the woods near to Boa Vista. We leave the woods at the village of Boa Vista and return to the cars.
The tracks in the wood are firm with some sand and some descents with loose stones and ascents. Part of the walk is through long grass so appropriate footwear is advised.


The walk is about 7 km and is expected to take about 2 hrs
