The pine woods between Nazaré and Valado do Frades
The walk follows sandy tracks through open pine woodland and by cultivated fields. Half way round we pass some stagnant water covered in pond weed – maybe your dog would enjoy a swim, but you may not enjoy the result. There are some quite steep, but fairly short sandy ascents. Bring your walking poles for extra stability. Some of the paths may be overgrown and wet if it rains.
The walk is about 5 km and is expected to take about 1.5 hrs
