I am thinking of Gale Beach to Armacao de Pera along the beach then back via the Salgados boardwalk.
If anyone is interested then I will post directions to the meeting point. 10am start and a gentle flat walk of about 2 hours.
We will meet at the car park on Gale Beach then walk along the beach towards Armacao de Pera. We will then turn back on ourselves and walk on the other side of the dunes, picking up the boardwalk at the superb Salgados Lagoon and returning to Gale Beach via the boardwalk - nice and easy. There are lots of birdwatching opportunities at the lagoon so bring your binoculars if you have any.
Take the 125 towards Guia and when you get to the "chicken" roundabout (white statues of chickens) turn right and drive past two sets of traffic lights and then turn right following signs for Apolonia and Gale Beach. Keep going straight down past the turn off for Apolonia and at the next roundabout follow the sign to Gale Beach, drive to the end and park by the cafes/restaurants.
This is a very flat walk which will take about 2hrs, depending on the birdwatching opportunities. At Gale Beach there are lots of cafes and restaurants but we may end up going further afield for lunch!
All walks at your own risk, and usual caveats about weather. If weather is doubtful there will be a posting on the web site by 8.30.
Mike - delighted to give you a lift - can you walk down to our house at 81AdM for 9.15?
