The trail is pleasant, the path is generally easy to identify. The cliffs have a breathtaking view. Just a few points to consider: on the coastline, you can find alternative paths a few meters away to avoid getting too close to the cliff. At the end of the coastline, be careful with the slope of Samarra beach, it is quite narrow and slippery, you should also be extra careful if the weather is too humid / low. You can also cross the beach by going to the other side upstream of the mouth of the river.Show more

As of December 2020, users reported that the trail is initially difficult to find and is not well marked. So have your application and maps downloaded handy. Other than that, a very pleasant trail with beautiful views!Show more

Beautiful scenery and wonderful hidden gems. Some beaches are difficult to access, and should only be visited when the tide is low. In the Praia da Ursa valley you have to be very careful, with very steep descents and ascents.Show more
