This really is the best hiking trail in Europe. The Seven Hanging Valleys trail in Lagoa was awarded the best hiking trail in Europe. It stretches 6km out and to return you’ll need to do another 6km but it is so worth it. If you’re up for a longer walk you can carry on west of Carvoeiro or start further east of Praia da Marinha, even in Armação de Pêra if you wish.
I set out on a mild Saturday afternoon in winter and hiked before sundown, after which I ventured out into a secret little spot for the night. Please note wild camping is illegal in Portugal (I just visited for the video).
