Rota Vicentina

Spring and Autumn are the perfect seasons to walk along the famous trails of the Rota Vicentina.

And the Fisherman’s Trail, which the village of Salema is part of, is probably one of the best coastal trails in the world.

Always by the sea, following the paths used by locals to access beaches and fishing grounds, this is a single track that can only be walked on, along the cliffs, with a lot of sand and therefore more demanding from a physical point of view.

A challenge to permanent contact with the sea wind, the harshness of the coastal landscape and the presence of wild and persistent nature. It includes a total of 13 stages, totaling 226.5 km.



On the Sagres – Salema route, the toughest stage of the Fisherman’s Trail, the hiker is rewarded by the grandeur of the limestone cliffs, of unique shapes, adorned by the beautiful beaches of Martinhal, Barranco, Ingrina, Zavial, Furnas, Figueira and finally, Salema .

In the last stage inside the Natural Park, Salema – Luz, it is worth taking some binoculars to observe the birds that appear along this trail, especially if you do it early in the morning, while imagining the old pirate attacks and corsairs, on land and at sea.
