Porto Covo to the Cape

Porto Covo to the Cape - 12 days - 10 walks.

Self-guided walking on  the Rota Vicentina from Porto Covo  to Cape St Vincent along the Fishermen's Trail.


Porto Covo to the Cape.

Experience the whole of the original Fishermen's Trail in the south west Alentejo, which for the most part follows paths that have been used by local fishermen for generations to reach the best spots for line fishing from the cliffs.

The route passes through several seaside villages before covering six "Coastal Circuits" on the Algarve's west coast.

The trail itself  is an incredible sensory  experience, from the sounds of the birds and the  vast Atlantic Ocean crashing against the rocks, abundant plant life  with a multitude of colours, shades and fragrances and varied geological phenomenon. The forests  display the changing colours of the cork oak trees and  the flowers and fruits of the strawberry tree.

Walking. Varied walking tour only requiring a good basic fitness level. You walk on well maintained marked walking trails and partly on forest paths.  On the coastal trails there is a considerable amount of dune walking. Daily walking times are max. 7 hours.
