Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Sintra Municipality / Colares / Cabo da Roca
Europe's most Western point, Cabo da Roca offers beautiful views of the rugged coast. Walk or bike to the Cabo da Roca lighthouse, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy time outside while exploring this spot, known as the Rock of Lisbon in the Age of Sail--a windy cape of granite boulders and rocky sea cliffs. Try to spot the low-lying vegetation and marine birds roosting temporarily along the coast and in nearby coves. At the site's monument, you can grab a bite to eat or explore nearby shops.

You must not miss this if you're around. Worth every minute of your life, 2x the minutes if you enjoy hiking and cliffs + ocean. Unfortunately we only spent a couple of hours there which is a painfully short time. You need one day only to make plans for a week of exploring the place. Really recommend it, this place will take you to another dimension
Really nice view, worth the visit. Can be a bit busy, not much else to do then the view. Although there are a few really nice walking paths around for the adventurous traveler. If you're in the neighborhood it's worth to stop there and take in the beauty of raw nature!
