I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Rota Vicentina. From start (I started in Lagos) to finish (from Porto Covo, I went to Cercal, then Odemira), I went from one outstanding place to another magnificent place. This trail must be one of the most beautiful trails in the world ... rich in amazingness and abundant in nature. Beauty never ends ... from the golden cliffs and fine sandy beaches, to the wildlife and wildflowers that abound, to the wild ocean surfs, the trees, the farm animals .... wow, wow, wow. I must say that there were sections that I had to navigate really carefully, as the path was precarious especially on the hills and cliffs. Some trails were overgrown but I think Portugal wants to keep as many areas as untouched as possible. Countless times along the trail, my spirits were uplifted, I shed many tears silently, for the overwhelming feeling of gratitude to the Creator of this all. Even heading inland, through the cork forests and hills of the Alentejo region, it was the same magnificent experience. I stopped so many times just because I had to enjoy the moment and the beauty around me. I loved each little hamlet and town that I went through. I wished that I had stayed longer in each town to just enjoy its local culture and food. It took me 14 days to finish hiking on this trail and everyday was, indeed, a blessing.

Being lodged in the small town you just have to go downstairs to reach the beach (in fact there are two beaches). Both are very agreeable and quite well protected from the wind. Anytime you need to go to your room and back to the beach it takes less than 10 minutes’ walk. Enjoy!

Praia dos Alteirinhos

Naturist beach.

Reviewed By TexasCorkie - Austin, United States

Awoke to rain and the hills shrouded in misty clouds. But ya know, the sea beckons and it is already wet. Praia Altereinhos has these really cute rocks and waterfalls and we had it all to ourselves, I guess because of the rain. There were others hiking the trails on the cliffs above. We parked above and trotted down the steps to the sand. Clear water streamed down the cliffs to the sea, carving the sand to the water at every low tide. The rocks, some striated and layered, others just made you want to touch them. The wild sea flung itself into the air which smelled of salt. So the hard part is making the decision to stay longer, or investigate the next beach? Adventure called and we moved on. Kids would have a great time investigating this lil beach. And well, it brought the kid out in me :-)

Praia das Furnas

Reviewed By pennyclow60 - Odemira, Portugal

Lovely sandy beach ????, depending on the tides there can be a gentle slope. During high season there is a lifeguard on duty. As an estuary it is tidal, the water can feel quite fresh! There are toilet facilities, Oasis bar/restaurant. Suitable for all ages, a peaceful beach.
