amazing view, we got the bus from sintra (4,10 Euro for a single) and it was about a half hour to 50 min drive. but I am very pleased we did it. The buses go every hour until just after 7 so we stayed for an hour. It was very windy and cold though but there is a beach about... More

Awesome view, feeling of freedom, wind blowing the ocean, waves breaking to the rocks. What i loved most about Portugal is the nature. Also, it is a must to stop at the praia do Guincho ( Guincho beach)- it's absolutely amazing!

Cabo da Roca (Cape Rock) is the westernmost point of continental Europe. Not much to see apart from a rocky cliff, thunderous waves from the Atlantic, and an historic lighthouse. There's also a Tourist Information Centre where you can get an inscribed certificate with a picture of the Cape, (plus its latitude and longitude), commemorating your visit. This is worthwhile,...

This is the westernmost point of Europe, and actually might seem a dull place. But if you visit it on a clear day by Sunset, you won't regret it!!! See the Sun touching the sea while the sky is filled with the twilight is indeed one of the best sensations I've ever had in my life. Although, It is very... More

This is the most westerly point in Europe. There are magnificent views up and down the coast; extremely impressive with the rollers coming in off the Atlantic ocean. There is restaurant where we had coffee but they did serve food. We were there out of season so very pleasant and not too many people. I guess best to get there... More

We joined a day tour from Lisbon to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais in March 2014. We were lucky and had an absolutely perfect day. The view overlooking the ocean is magical and it is just a nice spot to have a sit down and relax. And you can then say you've been to the most Western Point of... More

Cabo Da Roca is nice (and usually windy). It is not necessarily the most western point of Europe. If the definition is measured by Longitude - Ireland is much more to the west.

The westernmost point in Europe! Spectacular coastal views, exposed to the elements and very windy! We stopped off here at the end of our full day tour booked through Viator “Sintra, Pena Palace and Cascais from Lisbon”. Pleased we had the opportunity to stop at this remote part of the world and experience it. Would not have visited if it... More

A beautiful place. It is the westernmost point of EU facing the vast ocean. It is amongst the 800 geographical points in the world dedicated to peace since 1989. The light house built in 1772 is 165 meters high very impressive structure. One can easily go by bus from Sintra.
