The September Captain’s charity walk will be held on Friday 20th September 2019.  This walk will start and finish at Keith & Alison’s villa in Sesmarias, Carvoeiro.  The walk is 8KM and will take approximately 2 hrs.  This is a fairly easy walk, however there are 2 sections of downhill on the cliffs and an uphill climb on the road from Canerios Beach.

Description

The walk starts on tracks and roads then to a path leading to the cliffs, where you will see the Torre da Lapa (a restored watch tower) and have beautiful views of Praia do Mato, Praia du Afurada and Praia du Canerios, where you will have the opportunity to stop and have refreshments. From here we head inland and pass Parque Capismo Ferragudo, Boa Nova and back to Sesmarias for lunch.  There is an optional harder walk of the same distance for those feeling more energetic, we will give the opportunity to do either walk on the day!
