Walk along the esplanade to the Chapel of San Andres before continuing via a wooden walkway to the Natural Park of the Northern Portuguese Coast. Home to many different wildlife habitats including pine forests, wetlands and river estuaries you should be able to spot plenty of birds such as mallards, grey herons and cormorants and more than 200 different species of flora. Cross the iron bridge over the Cavadoy river before arriving in the city of Esposende.
