One of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, easy to get there and not expensive at all. Portugal offers the best options to spend a week off of the routine.

The best b-day. The extremely outstanding view. But if wants to reach this beach you need to climb up/down.... In any case it is worth it. Rocks, sand, atlantic ocean....
Must see...

Worth visiting!
Apr 2019
Beautiful view! It's worth visiting, but if you prefer a beach to relax and spend the day, there are many other beaches for you to choose from. This is a quick visit for pictures. A lot of tourists visit because it is the westernmost point in Europe.

A Must See

I found Cabo da Roca to be beautiful and the ocean crashing against the cliffs. There are some hiking trails to explore, well worth the trip out here.

Worth a quick stop. If you have time to hike and like to hike I would as long as the weather conditions are mild. The wind and wet rocks makes it dangerous for hiking. Had a feeling like being at table top in South Africa or even giants causeway in Ireland.

Best sunset I’ve seen so far
Oct 2019 • Solo
I read in several forums that the “Bear Beach” is a quite secret spot with not too many people and not far away from Cabo da Roca, as you have to climb a rocky and sandy path down. I took bus number 403 to Cabo da Roca (either from Sintra or Cascais), stayed there for 15 minutes, and started walking down the road until a small path came into sight on the left where I turned in. It can be recognised easily because it is the first path where cars can drive in and park there. Just follow the path and you’ll be fine. The climb down was not as scary as described on some pages on the Internet, but I would still recommend you to wear sturdy shoes and pay full attention to your steps because the road is very slippery due to the fine sands and small rocks. In my opinion, normal fitness condition is required, children/teens can do that hike as well. When the way splits up, take the left path which is the easier one to hike. After about 35 minutes (10 minutes walk from Cabo da Roca to the path not included) I was finally on the beach, so make sure you have enough time planned if you want to watch the sunset. Be aware of the rocks on the beach, they may hurt you. Now, it was time to lay down in the soft natural sand and relax, or to take beautiful photographs of the magnificent landscape, or observe the wild waves of the Atlantic Ocean splashing on rock formations and the beach. After sunset, you have about 30 minutes to climb up before the sky darkens completely. You’ll be able to catch one of the last busses at Cabo da Roca or just call a taxi. Notice that there is no reception, no Internet, no toilet available on the beach and it might get quite windy on some days, so make sure you are prepared and have everything you need in your day pack!

Breathtaking Scenery

This was part of a day trip from Lisbon before going to Sintra. The beauty of the ocean and its cliffs are spectacular. Cabo da Roca being the most western point of continental Europe is a must see

Gorgeous hike to hidden beach
Oct 2019
Really beautiful but only for those who are agile as it can get quite steep. It took us about 30 minutes to get down to the beach and wow......it was a page out of paradise! Highly recommended for those who are agile and not afraid of heights.

I almost don't want to say how beautiful this place was so that it doesn't become overrun with visitors! Staying in Sintra for a few days I took an uber over to the coast and it was literally the highlight of my trip. Have no worries about taking an uber there and then calling a new one when you're done.. there was good cell phone service and there were cars very nearby. I didn't hike all the way down to the beach (though there was a trail where you could) but sitting on the cliffs above with a good book and looking down made for a more than pleasant afternoon. If you're planning to hike down good footwear would be a must.
