Suggested itineraries

Even if the Ecovia do litoral is generally not described as an hard route, it can cause some trouble to untrained and unexperienced travelers, for these reasons:

  • steep hills, especially if you want to visit some of the most wonderful beaches
  • rough and bad terrain
  • strong wind
  • bad or missing signs and GPS tracks, that could lead you to get lost

So, for untrained people it is better to make shorter daily trips and sometimes to leave the main route in favor of some kilometers of paved and easy car road.

These itineraries are thought for traveling West to East, to take advantage of the wind, usually coming from the North/Northwest. Anyway, for experienced travelers it won’t be any trouble taking the route East to West, which is much better since you’ll end watching the Ocean at Cabo de São Vincente and you will find the most astonishing beaches in the last part of your itinerary.
