WALK - FRIDAY 16 OCTOBER - FIGUEIRAS NATURE WALK NOW CLOSED

Post by Linda and Russell »

This is a walk from Figueiras to the national park beyond Alvor estuary. It is around 10 kms. We walk beside the river, by a levada and down to the wildlife area beyond Alvor estuary. It is a flat walk and we may have the opportunity to see bird life. Meet 10am at the Sociedade Recreativo, Figueiras. Drive West along the N125, past the Alvor turning and Penina Golf and approximately 4kms further along take the 2nd right turn into Figueiras, after driving under the footbridge. Plenty of parking further along from the Cafe. The usual rules apply, walk at your own risk, bring a drink and no charge. Numbers are limited to 10 so please indicate below if you would like to join us. The contact number on the day is 0044 796 0552618. Linda.
