Arrival in Vila Nova de Milfontes

On your journey today you might decide to arrive a bit later than normal at your destination of Milfontes. It is a lovely village, but there is also a lot to see along the way! Take the route that winds to lesser-visited Sétubal and Troia and be rewarded with beautiful views along the way. With a bit of luck, you may even spot dolphins in the Rio Sado as it empties into the Atlantic Ocean.

Hiking along the coast

Make sure you have a decent breakfast this morning and get ready to explore a stretch of coast that many others just drive straight past. We’ve arranged transport for you to a little town called Almograve, where you walk along the coast on the Rota dos Pescadores. It a 15km walk and mainly through loose sand, but you can go at your own pace and stop along the way to eat your packed lunch or head off on a swim from a deserted cove. At end of the trail there is a ferry that’ll take you back across the river to Vila Nova de Milfontes.
