I've seen videos and photos of Cabo da Roca but it is nothing compared to being there yourself to see it for yourself. It was far better than what I expected. As we were there towards sunset, the sunlight shining on the whole place plus the colour really amazing. I was excited that we were stepping on the most western... More

Long drive out, but interesting. Good views out over ocean. Took in more history. If you go on the city or hop on bus, it's great. Not sure I would make a special trip just for this stop.

Not much to see here. We stopped on a bike tour, otherwise we would not have gone. If you want to check off the box that says you have visited the westernmost point of continental Europe, then you should visit. It is very windy since the cliffs overlook the Atlantic. Personally, I would not make a special trip just to... More

This is the furthest Western point in Europe and is appropriately dramatic. It is easy to reach by bus or car from Sintra, Cascais or Lisbon and is sensibly quiet and simple in layout To get a better view you can go up to the adjacent lighthouse but cannot enter. On the site there is a cafe, toilets and a... More

Amazing! Yeah, it's true - there is nothing else but the water and the wind (it's very very very windy! put on some warm clothes :)) but it is really a wonderful experience. You'll see a magnificent, powerful, terrifying, black and blue ocean. If you wonder what it feels like to be at the edge of the world, you have... More

The wild wind blowing off the Atlantic, the sound of the waves crashing against the cliffs, the horizon of nothing but water stretching out into the distance. It truly makes you appreciate the nerve of the men who got on wooden ships with nothing but the stars and a compass to guide them across to the New World. Getting out... More

I understand the appeal of being at the most western point of Europe but... basically just water for miles. And super, super windy (was quite chilly when I went). Guess it's what you make of it. I ran back to the bus after taking some obligatory photos.

Maybe I am spoiled, having seen too much of Europe, but this is just a windy cliff with a nice view and a sad restaurant. There's a small tourist office which was useful for buying a map of the area. Apparently this place makes a good starting or finish point for walkers/hikers, we drove and quickly drove off again!

Glad to have done this with the family. It was a bit cloudy (and windy!), so we didn´t get to see the sun actually setting in the sea - but the sky was all red and beautiful. Great sea view, nice light house and some cool rocks near the sea as well.

This is the most western point of continental Europe. I'm good friends with a local, who was nice enough to bring us down to the actual beach. It's a bit of a climb down and back up, but it was well worth it. We had the whole beach to ourselves, and we watched the sunset. Unforgettable.
