Very nice hike! However, I cannot understand, why the app suggests you to leave the coastline shortly after Praia de Adraga. If you follow this way, you'll miss some of the most beautiful views on the coastline. But be careful - the path which follows the coastline is at some points quite steep and good shoes as well as hiking experience are required.

The views at many points along the track are nothing short of spectacular. It is challenging at times, but even untrained can manage. At the southside of the beach at Praia das maças you have to cross a stream that is far too wide to jump. In summer and at low tide that might not be an issue. In winter it is best to start the hike on the north end of Praia grande. At the south end of the beach at Praia grande a detour is interesting to dinosaur footprints.
