Nice views, wonderful trail. If possible, try to go to Benagil Beach and take a boat. A trip to caves will be unforgettable.

Vice nice walk on the cliff. We ended up with a boat trip on the praia Benagil. The walk is sometimes difficult and you should wear good walking shoes. We took a boat trip (30 minutes, 15 €/person)

This was a great way to see the coast. Not terribly difficult but definitely check the weather and bring water and sunscreen; there is not a lot of shade. I took the train from Lagos to Portimao and then waiting for a taxi to turn...More
