CASCAIS / GUINCHO. Sanderling, common ringed plover and European stonechat are among the birds you may watch in the Guincho-Cresmina dunes. Visitors follow a trail through the dunar system walking with the help of information panels spread across three wooden walkways that connect Areia road to Praia do Guincho, in a total of 2,2 kilometers. Take a pair of binoculars with you, for a more accurate observation. The sea breeze and the sand glow are your companions in these trails, as well as the local flora, such as the Armeria welwitschii or the Sabina turbinata, and fauna, namely insects and reptiles that form a singular ecosystem whose survival depends on the balance of the Guincho dunes. The area of the dunes grows 100 meters each year. BOOK PICNIC
