WALK TUESDAY 10th MARCH: PORCHES TO ALBANDEIRA CLOSED

Post by williew » Sat Feb 15, 2020 11:47 am

I have been tasked with organsing some of the Tuesday walks in March and we will start with a very local, scenic and not to energetic one - Porches to Albandeira.

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 valley. A camera is a must if you have not seen the cliffs! It is no more than a 1 on our scale but there is the occasional short sharp climb. As a bit of variation we may even do it in reverse! If time permits we will take in Battleship Rock.

The start point is the Cafe/Restaurant known as Casa de Pasto Paragem. Coming from CVO take the N125 heading east towards Faro. Go past the International School and the new roundabout for Benagil and pass the two BP garages. Just after this take the first right off the ‘Porches’ roundabout heading uphill for Porches & Armacao de Pera. There is another roundabout where you keep right for Armacao de Pera. Keep on this main road and after about 1/2 mile you will come to open ground on the right side then the Casa de Pasto Paragem. There is a lot of open ground for parking opposite. This is the start point.

Geoff's usual caveats apply, (especially you walk at your own risk)
Start : 10am start.
Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : 1, easy
Duration : 2 hours 20 mins, but depending on how long we admire the views.

Carol & I will probably find a spot for lunch, either in Casa Paragem (very good if open) or somewhere else local.

If you wish to join us then please post a note on this forum.

Willie,

Please add me to the walk. If there's room, this level of trek is the only one my parents would be up to doing, so if I can add them as well I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

Don.
