Leixão da Gaivota Trail
Come with us in this journey between two fishermen's villages - Ferragudo and Carvoeiro. We start our walk in the charming fishing harbour of Ferragudo and we progress along its alleys. We stop in the Church's viewpoint and in Forte São João do Arade. Then we continue along the cliffs, passing by beaches and other natural beauties such as sinkhloes and stacks.
