We came to Cabo da Rock as part of our tour from Lisbon to Sintra. This was an unexpected surprise (maybe I should have read the tour brochure more carefully) and really appreciated seeing what is billed as the most westerly point of Continental Europe. Great Views of the Atlantic and of the cliffs.

We arrived here to see the sunset over the Atlantic. This place is basically over a cliff next to a lighthouse, where you can see waves from the Atlantic Ocean crashing into the rocks below, a very enjoyable view. Other than that, it was VERY VERY WINDY, so make sure you wear enough to keep yourself warm!

Lots of coach tours and nothing special apart from glorious views that you can find all along this coastline without the company of 100s of other tourists

If visiting Sintra I will suggest visit this location, a must see! The scenery is spectacular. Nice spot for sunrise and sunset, the view is breathtaking. A hidden germ!

I traveled through a good bit of Portugal for three weeks, and Cabo da Roca was one of the most exciting places in my entire trip. Geographically/historically it is the westernmost point on Continental Europe. Even though it would be suicide to launch a caravel from here, its position makes sense of the fact that that tiny Portugal was for... More

It's hard to describe the scenery in words- it was really beautiful. It took quite a journey to get there and I'm glad that it was worth it! Go and you won't regret.

This is the most western spot on Europe's map, on the Atlantic Ocean coast. Too many tourists come here just to say: I've been here and so did we. The lighthouse and the coastline are a perfect background for taking pictures. It is worth visiting only if you are visiting Sintra or the coastline area.

While Cabo da Roca itself is beautiful and it being the most western point of the European continent makes it special, taking a walk along the coast is very rewarding, too. We started at Praia Grande and walked on top of the cliffs to Praia da Adraga, another beautiful beach. We did not go swimming since the ocean was too... More

The sky, the sea, the wind, the wave, the cliff, the green and the flowers, together, comprise of a very inviting scene. Magic of Mather nature. It gives you strength and inner peace.
