Be careful and check the tide before planning your trip. 70% of the day the water is too high to do the walk along the shore.

Climb at Pal Do Mar is fierce. On sunny days there is not too much possibility to walk in the shade.

!!! MUST READ !!! It was a lot of fun, but please be careful and check the tide to plan trip. 70% of the day water is too high to do the walk along the shore. We got really wet and if you go at wrong time, your life is in danger. The climb in JdM is a little wet and very slippery. Medium high shoes are good for ankle support on beach rocks.

The description notes this as good for all skill levels. Definitely not. It's a medium to hard walk, but it's great! As well as this walk being marked as "easy", the short distance is also deceiving as it's very steep both ways.

Very nice walk and incredible views! Be careful to walk during low tide from Paul do Mar to Jardim do Mar. At high tide it could be impossible to walk on some parts of the rocky beach! Climb at Jardim do Mar is a heavy one, but very beautiful next to banana/mango plants.
