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. Add Cape Saint Vincent to your Sagres travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sagres road trip planning site.

Cape Saint Vincent reviews
I really like this place because it seems very isolated. Is just nature around you. Very windy. Great views. more »
End of the road. Roadside parking. You're at the western end of Algarve. It's windy all the time, so protect your caps, hats or shawls :-) It'good to visit a site of the lighthouse (look for the sea..... more »
Such a beautiful landmark to visit! Parking was good and only a short walk to some spectacular and breath taking views!!! The cafe was great too. Highly recommended! more »
It is the most southwestern point of Portugal and continental Europe. In the Middle Ages, this place was considered the end of the world known to Europeans. You must be there to see it! Centuries ago, they also looked into the same vastness.
It was really nice and sunny when we arrived there. Clear skies and no wind. Worth walking on the cliffs as well for some spectacular views.
Amazing view. It was worth to take a walk along the coast and watch the ocean's waves )
Top spot SW corner of Europe. A must see. Wonderful views, great sunsets.
Spectacular place, easy to walk on the cliffs for amazing views, easy to reach by bus or car.
