Cabo da Roca is the westernmost point that you can visit on the European continent. The Serra de Sintra here abruptly meets the Atlantic Ocean in a cliff of more than 100m high. The views of the cliff are breathtaking.

It takes 15 to 20 minutes to walk down to the beach via a small path, but the views are astonishing during the walk and once on the beach. A diversity of people, hippies, families, nudists, a.o. all enjoying the same beautiful peace of nature.
