Salir do Porto Headland (spo20S)


Date & Time

Wednesday November 8, 10:00

The Walk

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.
