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.

  • Cabo da Roca ... a beautiful place that reminds us of Camões. Beautiful scenery all the way ... worth to walk there and spend at least half an hour getting to know everything ... Do not visit without a coat ... wind too cold ... leave to visit at the end of afternoon sunset wonderful ....

  • 9/30 visit 18:20. Up before stop had been wading in the Estoril Coast, to Cape from the Atlantic cold winds inexorably spraying, cold feelings do not have. Was wrapped in a sense of accomplishment, like welling can however be of Eurasian continent's westernmost point to. We have big sunset were observed, but no rain, can stay until sunset. Even in the Internet age, he was born in Showa, loca (breathe spray hands freeze while) sent a postcard to a friend in Japan from Cape. I think you'd better stamps was raised in Lisbon. Is cold, please visit.

  • Being in Portugal and not go to te place where Continental Europe ends is a sin. Be prepare for the wind but also to a magnificent cliff view 
  • You should definitely visit this spot if you are in Lisbon. It is the westernmost point of continental Europe and is an easy detours if you are going to Sintra. The ocean views are just spectacular. We didn't go into the light house or any of the buildings around there(not sure if they are ticketed).
  • Most western part of Europe,come here to enjoy the unlimited view on the ocean and great landscapes. You can take a bus from Cascais or Sintra
  • Being in Cascais, the Lighthouse Cabo da Roca was on top of my list. It is the westernmost point of Continental Europe. Beautiful View on the Atlantic and Rocky coast. Bus 403 leaves from Cascais bus Terminal every 30 minutes during the day.
  • Sunset is the best time ,magic moment. Be noted that it s very windy. If u see the sunset ,u will miss the last bus to sintra. Arrange your transportation carefully
  • Fantastic views along the coast. Can be windy. Uneven paths away from the monument. Take the Sintra to Cascais bus.
