WALK - MONDAY 10 MAY 2021 - NOSSA SENHORA TO ALBANDEIRA

Post by Dafmie »

This is a variation of the Porches to Albandeira Coastal Walk, whereby we walk in a loop from the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha to the cliffs overlooking the beaches to the east of Marinha Beach, but without having to cross the Praia do Barranco beach, which has a dangerously steep ascent. There will be spectacular views from the cliffs.

The usual rules apply: wear suitable footwear, bring a drink, a walking pole (highly recommended), no charge, walk at your own risk and respect the social distancing rules.

Meeting point: Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha in Porches
Meeting Time: 10am - Monday is not deemed to be very hot, so we keep the starting time at 10. I don't know if coffee will be available at the start of the walk. There is a restaurant nearby, but it may be closed.

Directions: Go to Porches and follow signs to the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha, which is on a cliff overlooking the sea. There is a car park just before the chapel.

Co-ordinates: 37.096716, -8.386781

Please indicate below if you would like to join us. Just in case of bad weather check the website on Monday morning at 9am.

Hi Both,

If i’m not there by 10am, please don’t wait for me. I need to go to the Centro de Saúde in Lagoa first thing to try and sort out my problems with getting the vaccine.

See you soon.

The walk will be going ahead as planned.

It is possible that there will be a couple of minor showers, so walkers are advised to be prepared.
