Your walk today takes you along the unspoilt coastline with secret beaches and lagoons. It is indeed a landscape of rare beauty. The trail pass the beaches of Ingrina and Zavial where it's possible to stop at a beach bar and admire the views, and perhaps have a lunch of fresh seafood.

On arrival in Sagres, the most south western town on the Algarve, you really feel like you are walking to the ends of the earth and where the land, very distinctly, meets the sea. Try to give yourself time to wander around Sagres this afternoon or evening with its picturesque harbour and pretty plaza.
