Day 03
São Luís ­ Cercal do Alentejo ­ 21km

Lodging: Herdade da Matinha
Day 04
Cercal do Alentejo ­ Porto Covo ­ 21km
This is the section connecting the Historical Way to the Fishermen’s Trail  on Rota Vicentina’s northern region, allowing the hiker to feel this area’s strong connection to the ocean, as you approach the coast line and Porto Covo, a picturesque fishermen’s village
Transfer to Herdade da Matinha (20min)
Lodging: Herdade da Matinha
Day 05
Porto Covo ­ Vila Nova de Mil Fontes­ 22km
Transfer from Herdade da Matinha to Porto Covo (20min).
This is the beaches section, where you will walk along the vast sand dunes area of Ilha do Pessegueiro, Aivados and Malhão beaches and discover small deserted coves that will surprise you. It is a tiring walking day though, given its extension and the constant sandy terrain.
Day 06
Vila Nova de Milfontes ­ Zambujeira do Mar ­ 24 km
Transfer to the start of the trail (10 min)
This is a day to purify your soul thanks to the overwhelming views over Vila Nova de Milfontes and the Mira river that meets the ocean here.

Day 07
Zambujeira do Mar ­ Brejão ­ 15km
You will be passing the beaches of Alteirinhos, Carvalhal, Machados and Amália. Along this stretch of coast it is interesting to take a close look at the cliffs; note how the sedimentary rocks that were laid down horizontally over aeons have been folded and pushed out of all recognition so that what was once horizontal is now in some cases vertical.
Day 08
Brejão ­ Odeceixe beach loop ­ 22km
Today you will pass by the natural fishing harbour of Azenha do Mar and will enjoy one of the most outstanding views in the entire territory: Odeceixe beach seen from the majestic Ponta em Branco.
