GO COASTAL

FISH­ER­MEN’S TRAIL, ROTA VICENTINA, POR­TU­GAL

Backpacker - - 365 Days Of Adventure - –Cas­san­dra Majewski

If you’re afraid of heights, this one’s not for you. The trail on this 56-mile sec­tion of Por­tu­gal’s Rota Vicentina is of­ten nar­row, hug­ging cliffs with sheer dropoffs. (Did we men­tion the un­sta­ble sand?) Sure, each step’s a slight risk, but keep a safe dis­tance from the edge and the views across the ocean and up and down the coast are more than worth it. Start easy, on the beaches at Porto Covo, be­fore ex­plor­ing more dif­fi­cult ter­rain as you head south to fin­ish in Rogil. Ex­tend your trek with any of the four op­tional cir­cuits nearby. Camp­ing is only al­lowed at des­ig­nated camp­sites; book in ad­vance. CON­TACT ro­tavi­centina.com/fish­er­mens
