This trail starts at Porto do Calhau, ends at Areia Larga and lasts for about 2 hours. At the beginning follow the coast line for about 1km, until you reach a hill, which should be rounded by the right. Then, next to the crossroads that follow, enter through the vineyards and follow to the indicated mill, a viewpoint from where one has a panoramic view of the corrals of the vineyards. On this trail you can appreciate a good view of the islanders "standing and lying", also called the islanders of Madalena. In the vineyard area, you should carefully follow the signs. When you leave this area you will be again by the sea, where the trail continues until you finish at Areia Larga. During the journey, whenever you find your own signs you should look for the "trackers", traces of the carts that were carrying the kites of wine. In such cases, when you move away from the track, you must return to the main track. Walkers are asked not to pick fruit anywhere on the course.

It made for a nice pre dinner walking trail, it’s flat and easy and you can go just as far as you want, I would suggest walking up to the windmill.

Walking is mostly on the road but landscape is interesting. There are windmill and natural pool on the trail.
