Day excursion Maritime Experience

Sitio das Fontes

Hiking and Sailing the perfect combination for a beautiful day. In the morning, we visit the "Sitio das Fontes", the "place of springs". The lovely park is situated amidst the scenic Mediterranean landscape at a branch of the Arade river. Already in the 15th century the Portuguese seaman supplied themselves with fresh water at this spring. A draw well and the lovingly restored tide mill are witnesses of long ago.

After the visit, you go on board at the Marina in Praia da Rocha. Downstream on the Arade river we go out to the Atlantic ocean. Close to the coastline we go under machine to the rock formation close to Praia do Vau. Numerous seabirds have their nesting sites in the rugged rocks. Afterwards, we go in an eastward direction, set sails and sail along the coast.



Experience the varied coast area with its small bays, long sandy beaches and rock formations from a different view. Enjoy the fascination of sailing on a traditional sailing ship together with a little snack. Refresh yourself during a short break with a jump into the Atlantic.
