The headland above Salir do Porto
The first part is through woodland and shrubs and may be overgrown in places. We then follow the cliff in a northerly direction and reach a viewpoint with magnificent views along the coast and inland before passing across valley – a walking pole may be needed here on a steep, short descent. Then we head inland with views of the lagoon at São Martinho do Porto.
The walk is about 6 km and is expected to take about 2.5 hrs
Car meeting and start point
|The meeting point is along a side road on the south side of Salir do Porto.
From Salir do Porto drive uphill towards Foz do Arelho and at the top of the hill turn right onto a side road. There is a row of modern holiday houses on the left. Drive for 150 metres to an open area where there is parking.
NB. The flag on the map above shows the car meeting and walk start point.
