Day trip to Trancoso

For those keen, we will walk for 3-4 hours all the way along the beach to the picture-perfect little town of Trancoso. The timing of this walk will depend on the tides, but we’ll try to arrive in time for lunch. Life in this lovely 16th Century town revolves around a scenic ‘quadrado’ – a long grassy square with a little white-washed church at the far end overlooking the dramatic coastline below. Lining the quadrado are colourful little Portuguese houses. A photographer’s paradise!

After lunch, photo-snapping and lounging on the beaches, we will transfer the group back to Arraial (by road this time) and prepare ourselves for another fun night out!

INCLUDED: – Half day beach walk* to Trancoso & surrounding beaches

* Those who are feeling lazy may choose to skip the walk and get a lift both ways!
