From São Martinho do Porto, on sandy tracks towards Macarca and return
The walk is mainly along sandy tracks, with loose sand in places, but expect some muddy spots after rain. The walking is on flat ground, goes through pine and eucalyptus woodland and open fields to Marcarca. We then we walk a short distance along the road before heading towards Vale do Paraiso along more tracks. There is then a further stretch of walking on a quiet road before rejoining tracks to head back to the start point.
The walk is about 7.5 km and is expected to take about 2 hours.
Car meeting and start point
