Vila Nova De Milfontes, Alentejo Map

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.

Easy terrain (except for the dunes and sandy path at the beginning), the difficulty of this trail is it's length. From Cavaleiro to Zambujeira do Mar it's only regular "country" road which is super comfortable but slightly boring and your feet may start hurting at some point.

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

A fantastic walk/hike... amazing views of the valleys and the lake. i will do it again!!!

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.

I hiked the Fishermen's Trail, which is part of the Rota Vicentina, over the course of four days. It's a pleasant long-distance hike hugging the Portuguese coast, with extensive ocean scenery and generally flat terrain. I think it would be a very approachable multi-day hike for beginners given the relatively undemanding terrain and very reasonable daily mileage. There are several small towns along the way, so you don't need to tent camp or worry about running out of provisions. I completed the trail in May and, in addition to very agreeable temperatures, this meant that there were abundant wildflowers along the trail and plenty of opportunities to view nesting sea birds and their young. The most challenging aspect of the trail was 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, which is what I did. 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.
