Rota do Atlântico is a beautiful walking course, right by the sea, which starts at Praia Azul a Porto Novo Beach and finish, or the opposite.
It is a linear course, with about 11km and 76m of maximum altitude. Pass through Arribas, Alto da Vela, Santa Cruz Church, Convent Ruins, along with the beach line.
I am not the most specialized person to describe this walking course in technical terms, but I have already (literally) ran from end to end and so many times that I lost count, this course, in many years, first to take vacations in the last 20 living in this wonderful little corner. I RECOMMEND!!
This course was created and developed by the Municipal Camera of Torres Vedras, and here you can find all the necessary information.
Please consider this small text, just as a way of someone local, who loves the energy of this land, to spread what some of it got best.
Choose dates out of high season so that we can all serve you better. July and August are the times of greatest affluence. If you come to relax and practice some kind of activity with booking requires do it in timely manner.
Depending on where you start your journey, I recommend a Crayfish Rice at the Vela d’Ouro Restaurant, where Chef Agostinho and his wife Alexandrina will greet you with the warmth of a family member in their home. Or the Promar Restaurant, a golden grill. In the afternoon a few pints at the Boca Santa Restaurant, where Rui will advise you what is going best on the day.
To sleep, since they will walk in the street all day, I recommend the Golf Mar Hotel or the Hotel Promar. Both with amazing views over the beach!
But before retiring to your room, enjoy a beer, a freshwater or a hot tea, … On the terrace practically standing in the sand of the DALI Bar, or on the balcony above the sea of the Bar of the Hotel Golf Mar.
Sorry for the trends, but for me, the closer to the sea, the better I breath and the happier I feel… 😍
From a local citizen, for all the hikers and interested, enjoy!
