Behold the rugged coastal scenery from the most southwesterly point in Europe at Cape Saint Vincent. Visit the cape's 1846 lighthouse, which stands at 24 m (79 ft) and watches over one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. Listen to the waves crashing on the cliffs and keep your eyes open for the many birds that inhabit and nest in the area, such as gulls, eagles, storks, and falcons. The terrain is moderately rough, so keep this in mind if bringing children or those with limited mobility.

  • very beautiful cliffs and wonderful to see absolutely. a lot of people in October I dare not think in the summer but the visit is a must; I also recommend you to taste the ice cream sold to the bar for a reasonable price; There is also a small market friendly

  • Breathtaking view. You really feel that you are at the end of the World, enjoying the view that Christopher Columbus had when he left the old Europe behind him. That is the "Finistera" the end of the ...  read more »
  • You feel almost like at the end of the world. The wind blows and turnips to the clothing, while it stands several dozen meters above the surf. I went there with the roller of Lagos off. It makes a nice day trip.

  • What an amazing place. Even at 39c the wind made it feel really cold. Stunning views of the Portuguese coast being battered byThe Atlantic Ocean. Well worth the long drive to see.
  • This is the spot everyone goes to when visiting Sagres. It's marketed as "The End Of The World", and it really does look like it is. It's an amazing place to watch the sunset, and a perfect place to watch the reams of people applauding the event. If you do not wish to see the sunset from the lighthouse common grounds, the surrounding area outside is perfectly suitable, if not better. There is a coffee shop and a small museum inside. Fair warning: this is a tongue of land stretching into the wild and freezing Atlantic Ocean, it is going to be COLD and very windy, even in the Summer. Do your best to bring something to warm up if needed, because if you don't, there is a poncho and jacket sale right outside, all year round, even in the Summer, and you will understand their business model ;)
  • Take a wind jacket if you can. Not as spectacular as the Sagres fort, and a bit more commercial. There's a small bar and restaurant inside the fort and scopes to view the Sagres fort.
  • perfect spot to see the sunset in Portugal, it was so windy and cold compare to the other part the Algarve we went with the short and t-shirt but it did not kept us from wind, I suggest get your jacket when going there
  • What a view! Majestetic cliffs creating a sharp Portuguese borderline to the Ocean. Go and see!
