Re: WALKS ON 13th JUNE ODIAXERE & 17th JUNE PEDREIRAS

Two nice walks to conclude our walking season. On Thursday 13th, Willie & Carol, Graham & Ruth & Gareth & Erica enjoyed a nice walk to and from Odiaxere followed by lunch at Choupama on the N125.

13th to 19th June

Carol & I are planning to come out to Carvoeiro on the 12th June, returning to UK on the 19th.

Is there any interest in a walk (and lunch of course) on the 13th or 17th or 18th June?

THURS 25th APRIL: PORCHES TO ALBANDEIRA:

On Thursday 25th April we will do the Porches to Albandeira walk, a very good local walk to Carvoeiro. This is a superb walk of great variety, starting off through a hamlet, then crossing the dunes, then through a valley to the cliffs between Marinha and Albandeira Beaches then back through the vall...

Re: EXTRA WALK AT TWO RIVERS, THURS 14th MARCH

There have been a few walks here in the past few weeks so I have decided we will do a variation and 'go over the top' - there is a steady walk uphill on a road near the start but the views at the top are stunning and well worth it. Still a Cat 2 walk and relatively easy.
