Length: 46.4 mi • Est. Multi-day
This is a pleasant long-distance hike hugging the Portuguese coast, with extensive ocean scenery and generally flat terrain. There are several small towns along the way, so you don't need to tent camp or worry about running out of provisions. In addition to very agreeable temperatures, there are often abundant wildflowers along the trail and plenty of opportunities to view nesting sea birds and their young. The most challenging aspect of the trail is the fact that much of it is on a base of very soft sand, which requires significantly more effort from your legs than most other trail surfaces. Good sun protection is a must as the trail offers almost no shade at all. Most hikers travel north-to-south but there is nothing to prevent you from hiking in the opposite direction. The trail is exceptionally well-signed in either direction. It is not a heavily trafficked trail, but traveling south-to-north affords you even more solitude. This trail is a part of the much larger Rota Vicentina. The Fishermen's Trail hugs the coast while the Historical Way goes more inland.
