Um dos trilhos da Rota Vicentina mais bonitos que já fiz. Muito bem sinalizado.

This was a beautiful trail! I recommend walking this trail South to North to avoid having the sun in your eyes during the day. Parts of this trail were overgrown, but it's well signed and easy to follow. The views are spectacular!!

On the 2nd day of hike we appreciated the shorter route, varied scenery, and oh the paths so well marked. Thank you, to everyone who makes Rota Vicentina happen

Lovely walk along the coast. Sand in places will give an extra workout. Pretty straight forward, well marked.

Beautiful hike. Relatively easy, although somewhat overgrown in parts, and some soft sand. Villa Millafontes is a nice small town. Almograve is not up to much.

Beautiful coastal walk. At times, you are walking through soft sand, which can be a slog, but it is nearly all flat, so not too difficult. b Both towns, at either end of the walk, are good places to wander around, have some food, and stay the night.

lovely trail. very well marked. some deep soft sand that kicked my butt.

Dec 11 50f strong wind. Nice hike. Took a taxi from VNDM to start in Almograve and walk backward to VNDM. Not as scenic as the PCovo walk. Someone had cleared the overgrown portion which helped but still needs cleaning up. Well marked but this App with terrain downloaded is perfect. We did this hike in 4 hours plus an hour lunch at the end at the Oasis restaurant on the river. Also portions of sandy tracks but mostly easy walking.

Beautiful, mostly flat. Some deep sand.

once again, fantastic scenery and hike. some sandy parts but ok. a few quite steep ascents and descents that need to be taken slowly but not too dangerous. views were to die for.

Nice hike, fantastic scenery, small section of soft sand towards the end but nothing too strenuous. some of the pathways were overgrown leading to confusion until the right way was clear. The AllTrails map was correct all the way and was a great help.

Nice hike along the coast but a bit overgrown in spots. Access to beach in early part

il faut compter 4h, en marchant vite si vous souhaitez voir les paysages. le sentier cotier ne donne pas directement vue sur la mer il faut donc faire pas mal de petits aller retours sur les dunes pour admirer le paysage. ll y a tres peu d ombre donc bien penser à crémer. C essentiellement un sol sablonneux donc a eviter pour les genoux aux tendinites faciles.

Det er en god tur med forskellig natur. Der er dog lidt for meget sand.

A really excellent short trail BUT (!!!) several issues. 1. significant portions of the trail are not marked (from 7 - 5.6 km and from 3.7 - 4 km) - I walked the trail counter clockwise. 2. ALSO (!!!) on the unmarked portion from 7 - 5.6 km the Trail is marked is not correct, and doesn't follow the GPS if you are trying to figure it out somehow. Eventually it reconnects at km 5.6. The path as it appears on the Alltrails GPS track makes no sense and goes through impenetrable or heavy undergrowth, whereas the trail I followed - with a few false starts in different places - does follow an established track. 3. I would describe the trail as moderately DIFFICULT if going in the direction I went. THere are two steep sections which would be downhill if you do the circuit clockwise. ONE of these sections would be difficult if you took the route I took on the unmarked section. 4. I don't know what issues you would encounter doing the trail clockwise, since from the clockwise direction the trail follows another trail (the San Luis to Cercal section of the Historical Way) and there is no indication as far as I can make out of where you turn at km 5.6. So if you feel confident and have a GPS with you, you will find it is an excellent trail, with two very high points that give very good views to the west. The trail goes through woods, farms, and hilly countryside - exceedingly pleasant, with few other travellers, and lots of birds. My issues with the lack of trail marking and the incorrect GPS vs Trail path (as provided by Alltrails app) were minor irritations. It should be easy to fix these issues. I hope someone does.

A great trail with great views. Some sandy portions but also some great walking on top of the cliffs and along fields. Thanks for making this trail such a quality experience.

Very beautiful. Lots of people on the trail including a tour bus of over 30 people at one viewpoint. The ups and downs were not as hard as the sand walking from previous northern sections. We were staying at Casa Dorita at Praia Odeceixe and we were super happy to be able to wade across the river at low tide and avoid 6k of road walking. Swam at fabulous Odeceixe Beach with a gorgeous sunset at the end of the day.

Another gorgeous section of the Rota. This one is not so difficult as the one from Porto Covo but also not quite as spectacular. Mixes coast with farm fields. The last 4.5 km are all sand dune and so slow to walk. We found a rope ladder down to the beach and enjoyed walking down there for about a mile before finding another rope ladder back up. The ability to walk the beach is tide dependent.

That was definitely the toughest part of the trail (I started in Porto Covo and went south) - loads od ascending and descending, sometimes pretty dangerous, which may be difficult for people with fear of heights. otherwise it was super nice and I think I liked this part the most.

pretty easy most of the time, loads of sandy paths for the last 2-3 km

Took this hike on a cloudy mid-October day. It has a variety of environments, from pastures and cork oak harvesting areas to native forests, wetlands, and the Mira River. Very well marked. Took me just about 3 hours at a steady pace.
