My reasoning for going right onto R.da Calheta at the bottom of the steps is that to the left is Kellys Bar as well as many restaurants which would be heavily populated at 10-00p.m.
By turning right as can be seen an "abductor" or someone wanting to dispose of a body has quick and easy access to the beach area of PdL which would not have many people around at that time of night.
Having said that if our mystery man had gone down the steps toward R.da Calheta, at the very bottom of the steps is a bar (didn't get the name of it) that has tables and chairs outside, so this would most probably be unlikely. The more opportune route would have been to turn right onto R.das Salgadeiras which is located halfway down the steps between R.25 de Abril and R.da Calheta.
You can still gain access to the quite beach areas through some scrubland.

Route 2 as follows;

 Looking right from apt. 5A up R. Dr. Agostinho da Silva.
Route 2 - 1
Pedestrian laneway between R. Dr. Agostinho da Silva and R. do Ramalhete
Route 2 - 2
 Looking up from the top of the pedestrian laneway into Urbanizacao Luzurbe (residential then scrubland further up the street)
Route 2 - 3
 If you follow R. Dr. Agostinho da Silva around by Casa Liliana you come to the junction with R. do Ramalhete, just across from here is a dirt track, this is the entrance to it.
Route 2 - 4
Route 2 - 5 & 6 The dirt track goes up quite a distance and as can be seen in 2 - 6 "people" camp out during the summer months. 
It is worth noting that one of these Routes would be the one that Jane Tanners abductor would have taken approx. 40 mins before the more credible smith sighting. What puzzles me most is that the description on the clothing of the man in both sightings is so similar.
Interestingly if there was an abductor and Jane Tanner had indeed observed him with Madeleine he could always have left the apartment and turned right along the route of her sighting, gone up the pedestrian laneway and then turned left onto R. do Ramalhete, continued on to the junction of R. Primeiro de Maio, straght across onto R. do Ramalhete and taken a left down the dirt track / walkway located approx. 150 yards further up which in turn leads to R. da Escola, scene of the Smith sighting. Though this would only have taken approx. 15 - 20 mins which means either Tanners sighting was closer to 9-35 ish or else that the abductor had 20 mins unaccounted for with Madeleine.
