This is the most Easterly point on Mainland Europe, and looks out (very high up) over the Atlantic. With nothing to stop the wind blowing over the ocean until it hits you with a cleansing freshness. The site was busy when I visited. A Bikers paradise with hundreds of big motorcycles. The view up and down the coast is breathtaking... More

We didn't have difficulty parking, there were people but not too many, the views north and south are very beautiful, the sea is blue, the waves break on the rocks, it is a bit wild, you can imagine when the ships were arriving from the sea. It is cooler than in the city and windy. This is a place you... More

This is like a 30 min stop to check the view and take some photos, maybe longer if you want to wander around a bit or if you brought picnic. Amazing view, and you can really see why people thought it would be a bad idea to sail away off the edge of the world. There is a souvenir shop... More

That's really worth going to Cabo da Roca and see the sunset over western Europe. This place has something special that you can feel when going there. It's quite windy and therefore can also be a bit cold, bring your coat !

It's worth a stop to visit the westernmost point of continental Europe. The views are spectacular. It can be quite windy most of the year so keep in mind even if it's the height of summer, you should bring a jacket.

As it is the most occidental place in Europe, here you can see the best sunset ever. It is amazing seeing it from the beginning until the end of the day.

It's definitely worth passing by Cabo da Roca. The views are great, and it is the most Western point (of the continent - living in Ireland I have to point out that the most western point of Europe is on the Irish west coast - but then that is an Island) It can get very busy up there during peak...
