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.

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 Reviews
Το δυτικότερο σημείο της Ευρωπαϊκής Ηπείρου , μπροστά σου απλώνετε ο Ατλαντικός ωκεανός κ το μάτι χάνετε στο βάθος ... την μέρα που πήγαμε είχε πολύ αέρα κ κρύο !! Πολύ όμορφο μέρος , αξίζει. more »The westernmost point of the European continent, in front of you you are spreading the Atlantic Ocean and the eye you lose in the background... The day we went had a lot of air and cold!! Very nice place, worth it.
The light house area is worth a visit. There are buses if you don’t have a car. We walked along a trail from Almoçageme which is a pleasant stroll although do be prepared for hills! It was very windy ... more »
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!
