Portimão offers guided walks

Nature || Portimão council has presented the 2015 schedule of its guided walks through the most interesting areas of the borough.

The first takes place on February 21, with a walk along the town’s coast between Praia do Vau and Ponta João d’Arens. Says the council, it will be a chance to “observe the great diversity of landscapes and habitats”.

The 3km route, to be led by a team of biologists, will begin at 9.30am and is expected to last two-and-a-half hours.

Registration is free and anyone interested should sign-up quickly as spots are limited.

A number of other walks are scheduled for March 21 (between Moinho da Rocha and the local train station), April 18 (Alvor sand dunes) and May 23 (the Ria de Alvor estuary, a particular favourite with bird-watchers).
