Fantastic and picturesque views of the rocky carved up cliffs. It was an easy walk along the dirt/sand trail above the cliffs. I enjoyed venturing down to the edge of the cliffs for some better views, and that required being careful along the narrow trail with steep drop offs right alongside. It was worthwhile taking the long stairway down to Camilo beach where there’s a cool arch to walk through and a secret cave to crawl into and look skyward through the rock tube. We went at low tide I believe and the arch and cave might not be accessible at higher tides.

I started the hike at Porto de Mos Beach. Despite what the map says, you cannot walk around the point by way of the beach. I had to walk inland and then back towards the beach just after the point. The boardwalk started the walk along the edge of the cliffs and they were magnificent the whole way. The route is basically flat with a few minor dips when I chose to walk out to the rim of the cliffs. The rocky carved out cliffs are picturesque. If you choose to stay on the boardwalk, then the stroll to the lighthouse is essentially flat. There’s no cover during the walk which was fine since the day was warm but slightly overcast and not hot today, November 4. The rock formations at the lighthouse are fantastic, and it was well worth taking the stairs down to the water.
