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.

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