A really nice steady costal walk. Views are extremely good and it's easy to see Porto Santo and The Desertas on most days. Pretty safe and manageable for all ages and abilities with care. It has good hand rails in lots of places and not too many risky bits. At 8km there and back (steepish in places) I would say it's better to allow at least 3 hours, especially if you intend taking photos. Couple of pointers.. there are not really any toilets or facilities and you should have sturdy footwear. We noticed some very in-appropriate footwear during our walk.
