Rota Vicentina: The Fishermen’s Trail
The Rota Vicentina or the Fishermen’s Trail as it is known is a magnificent coastal trail taking walkers along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in a region of spectacular beauty in Southern Portugal.
Walkers will be amazed by the breathtaking landscapes of this off-the-beaten-track area in the Alentejo and Algarve. You will be following in the footsteps of local fishermen who have used these tracks to reach the best fishing spots along the coast for many generations.
Spectacular cliffs, superb beaches, and quaint fishing villages make this trail simply unmissable. Enjoying balmy temperatures throughout the year, the Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail is ideal to travel in the Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September, October, and even November). This makes it the perfect route for a winter walking getaway in the sun.
While the Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail is not part of the Camino de Santiago route network, the trail takes walkers to the Cape St Vincent (Cabo de São Vicente), a traditional place of pilgrimage for centuries.
You can choose to walk the trail from Porto Covo (10 nights) or from Odexeice (6 nights).
