WALK - MONDAY 17 DECEMBER 2018 CALDAS DE MONCHIQUE

Post by Linda and Russell » Thu Nov 22, 2018 6:18 pm

The walk is around 10kms approximately 2 1/2 hours. Start time 10am. Meeting point: Foz Do Banho restaurant, before Caldas De Monchique.
There are a few steep hills and a steep downhill section on uneven ground so bring poles if you have them. We should have some great views. This is a grade 3.5 walk. The usual rules apply, walk at your own risk, wear suitable footwear, bring a drink and no charge.

You can also join us for lunch after the walk for Chicken Piri Piri at the famous Café Imperio, approx 15 euros including wine and extras.

Directions: From Lagoa: drive West along the N125 to the Monchique turn off at Portimao. Drive up the
N266 towards Monchique for about 13kms until you see restaurant Foz Do Banho on the left side of the
road. Park just above the restaurant which will be closed so get a coffee on route.

Numbers are limited so please indicate below if you are attending and if you are staying for lunch.
Linda and Russell will be leading this walk and the contact number of the day is: 0044 7960552618

Linda reports :


Another enjoyable walk in the Algarve sunshine. Ten walkers and 2 dogs. John, Jim, Linda, Gill, Jenny, Anthony, Dawn, John, Mike and Russell (photographer). A nice clear day with views down to the sea and up towards Monchique. We walked just over 10kms in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

And a "lucky" seven had a very enjoyable lunch on the terrace at Cafe Imperio sampling the famous Chicken Piri Piri and maltezer desert. A very enjoyable time was had by all.
