Serra dos Mangues – Parque de Marendas e Costa (smp09S)

Circular coast walk above Praia da Gralha

A circular walk starting at the picnic area across from the entrance to the Colina do Sol campground (Parque de Campismo Colina do Sol) and following the trail along the coast above Praia da Gralha and Praia Salgado.

The first part of the walk is on paved bike paths and gravel roads. Once we reach the coast, we follow a hardpacked trail along the bluff between Praia da Gralha and the mirador on the south end of Praia Salgado. The return path is through the quiet roads of Serra dos Mangues. Some areas of this route can be slippery after a rain so wear shoes with good traction.


The walk is about 5,9 km and is expected to take about 1,5 hours
