Been there with a group of friends. Easy to reach from Lisbon, we took the train to Sintra and a bus from Sintra to Cabo da Roca. I would recommend to stay there and enjoy the sunset. The view is stunning and the photos will be even better :)

This is one of the most amazing place on earth. We visited this place as it is the western most part of the European continental. The dramatic landscape with high cliffs going steep into the Atlantic Ocean is so surreal. If you are ever in Sintra, you have to stop at this place. It is simply amazing to see the... More

Such a beautiful place. We were very lucky and had a lovely sunny November day. Amazing waves and nothing but sea for miles.

Cabo da Roca is a wild and rugged headland that marks the most westerly point of mainland Europe. The windswept cliffs of Cabo de Roca were believed to be the edge of the world up until the up until the late 14th century and the spectacular, desolate scenery adds to the allure of the location. The raging Atlantic Ocean waves... More

While visiting Sintra - I say make the restaurant Pao de Trigo the food destination and Cabo Roca the side trip. You won't be disappointed! Make sure to stay in the railings. People have been swept away by the strong gusts of wind.

Opinions will differ on this place and the value of visiting. For some, an opportunity to stand on the very edge of Europe with only the Atlantic in front and Central America the next landfall - for others 1/2 hour in a very bracing wind, some steep cliffs, a gift-shop and a hasty photo opportunity along with every other tourist...

Drove the short distance from Sintra to arrive at Cabo da Roca at sunset. It is the western most point in Europe. Very windy (take a scarf), but the sunset was AMAZING! Not very crowded. Great parking. There is a small gift shop (we didn't visit it). Highly recommend making this stop part of your itinerary.

Half an hour ride from Sintra, Cabo da Roca is definitely a special place to visit. Chinese language would describe "eternal love" as "天涯海角", love till the end of the earth". Sending a postcard from the tourist center for your love would be a great idea if you didn't bring her/him here! lol The view is breathtaking and the sea... More
