Seven Hanging Valleys Trail

Seven Hanging Valleys Trail

This trail takes you on a stunningly beautiful hike along the Algarve's coastline, skimming the cliff-edge the entire way, treating your eyes to views for more or less a four hour adventure - just short of 8 miles.   We decided to lengthen our trail slightly by starting at Algar Seco (usually the walk would begin or end at Centeanes). Walking towards the cliff edge you’ll spot the walking path inviting you to the cliff, with wooden fences [...]
