Cape St Vincent

We will be in PDR first week of April and would love

to visit Cape St Vincent. My problem is, it seems

to be hard to get there. Can anyone tell me what

is the best and most reasonable route to see

The Cape and also are there other villages out

there we should see. Would appreciate any

help.

There is a direct bus (just one) each day but not at weekends.

It leaves Praia da Rocha at the Clube Praia da Rocha (Norte) bus stop at 1000am, arriving at Cape St Vincent at 1125.

The return journey does not leave until 1505, so if you get bored or it's raining etc it is a four mile walk to Sagres for an earlier bus at 1340.

Most people drive there of course, or in season there are excursion trips from many tourist areas, often combining Cape St Vincent with a visit to Sagres or Monchique.

If you go by car, it is easy to get to. Just head out of Praia da Rocha towards Alvor and the N125 then follow that road until you get to the end.

I can confirm the bus is running all year. I saw it last week on its way out of Praia da Rocha.
