Start the day with a transfer to Barão de São João, a small inland village, characterised by its coloured window bars and distinctive Algarve chimneys with unusual geometric shapes and lacework patterns. From here walk along trails through Stone Pine forests and through other white-washed inland villages en route back to the coast.

The other option is to have a day of rest in Salema, explore the nearby coves and beaches, and enjoy a relaxing lunch in a local café.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
