Since I live on the west coast of the U.S. it was fun to visit the farthest west point in Portugal which is also the farthest west point in all of continental Europe. Beautiful day; sunny, clear. Great view. Lovely to stand and contemplate the waves and the vastness of the ocean.

We recently traveled to Sintra for our wedding vows, this being a convenient location to bring together family from the US, Canada and Russia. We spent a couple of days prior looking around and after visiting this location decided it would be the perfect site for wedding pictures. Amazing views.

If you are lucky and there is not mist, the view must be spectacular. Unfortunately, when we had visited this place , the weather was absolutely unsuitable to enjoy the atlantic ocean. It must be like the end of the world.

It really seems like the end of the world this place. You can reach it by bus from Sintra - bus company Scotturb. Take something warm to wear. At the time of our visit (july!!) it was cloudy, windy and chilly.

The cape is located within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, 42 kilometres west of the city of Lisbon and in the southwest of Sintra. An impressive site to enjoy on a sunny day especially if you are surrounded by people you love.

The end of the World, where the infinite azureness begins. One should definitely drop by this place, because of its enormous beauty. The gem of Portugal. If you visit this country, definitely stop here to admire the ocean. You will love this place a lot.

I came with a tour bus and I admit, we cluttered the lookout point. However, walking along the edge of the fence on either side and the crowd quiets down, replaced with the sounds of the waves and the view of the Atlantic Ocean that seems to fall off from the end. The view of the cliff around is also... More

It is hard to put in words the feelings and emotions when you are faced with the fact that you are looking at the mighty ocean. One feels so small, and yet on the top of the world. Just go! preferably wear a jacket because it is windy even during the summer, but JUST GO!!

A bit crowded when the tour buses unload, but wait it out and things will hopefully become more peaceful. Outstanding views of the sea and the waves crashing below. Definitely worth the stop!
