Nothing of great note to say.

It's a view of the Ocean much like the coastline for hundreds of miles each way, you would only know that it was the most south western point of europe because the spiel says so.

There was a cost to use the toilets which I find unacceptable in this day and age.

The scaffolding Covers the lighthouse. There is nothing to really see or do. The crowd is thin and the weather is not ideal for being here. The unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean is beautiful. I would not make a special trip out but if passing make a stop. Neighboring Salema is beautiful!

We were there on a rainy day and had some great views--if not for the rain we would have been hanging on a beach, but it was worth the drive to be at "the end of the earth". Like a lot of other places we went in Portugal, the property is undergoing renovations and the light was covered in tarps and scaffolding--hopefully making it better for the future

The light house is under construction and the remaining area is blocked. However you can still enter the premises and get good shots from the entrance.

This is a special and elemental place to visit. For the first time while visiting the Cabo it was warm and sunny, usually it it wild and cold. It's worth the extra trouble to visit this place and immerse yourself in its unique atmosphere.

Our first day in the Algarve we traveled ( by car) to the westernmost point of Europe! This is an excellent area to explore. Lots of walking! Sights include the navigation school, a fort, Henry the Navigator- and watching the surfers! It is a very arid landscape. There is a cafe and gift shop. Worth the drive. Very laid back.
Wear great hiking shoes, hats and sunscreen, dress for warm weather. Adequate parking. Nice restrooms. Food and souvenir trucks were nearby- got some fresh squeezed OJ!

Don’t just drive there for the views, bring your hiking shoes and head up the coast. We did a 3 hour circular trail (12km) and could not stop being amazed by the view from the cliffs and all the colours on the rocks.
Don’t forget to bring water, sun screen and a hat, it is very exposed.

The light house is way more spectacular to view from a distance, go to the Fortaleza in Sagres for the best view. If you get peckish you can try the food in the many food trucks that seem to be permanently parked by the car park.

The views were good and you're at the most southwestern point of mainland Europe. But, it was extremely busy, very touristy, and difficult to find parking.
