I absolutely loved visiting Cabo da Roca. My husband and I were staying a couple of days in Sintra. We got on a bus to Cabo da Roca from Sintra, the bus costs $11 one way. You can get a bus every 45 minutos. Once we got to Cabo da Roca, I could not believe the view!! It was amazing!... More

This place was stunning. It was also ridiculously windy and cold even on the day that was meant to be 30 degrees C. Bring a jacket, for you are standing on a cliff's edge. It's worth it though, just to say you've been, and to actually SEE the horizon bend in front of you.

You should definitely come here. If you have a car go all the way through the sea road (very pleasant), passing Belem, carcavelos, Cascais, estoril and you will reach Cabo da Roca. It is a lighthouse woth incredible views to the Atlantic Ocean: there are also guided visits to go there. Warning: it is really windy

If you're visiting Sintra and/or Cascais, this is a must see. The most westerly point on continental Europe. Amazing cliffs. But don't go beyond the fences, as it can get dangerously high!

Cabo da Roca is the western most point of Europe and is situated around 30 kms from Sintra. Its around 45 mins of bus journey taking you from some very narrow and winding roads. Felt a little sick while travelling but all the sickness went away in seconds when we reached there. Calling it a beautiful place would be an... More

Magnificent views of the coastline from the most Westerly point on continental Europe. Especially beautiful in the early evening as the sun starts to set.

I only made the trip as I was in Sintra and I live close by the other most westerly point in Europe(Sagres). I wish I hadn't had bothered. Whilst the views were great, the restaruant was a rip off, €1:50 for a plain bread roll and €7 for a plate of chips, give it a miss.

The experience - Breathtaking! The sun, the sea (actually ocean) and the sand (only on the path we walked). Don't worry if you are having a bad hair day. With the wind at the place, no one will know. It is best to cover your head with a hat or cap and tie it up in a pony tail if... More
