Create an itinerary including Cabo da Roca
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.

  • A must see; must visit place. Easily accessible with any form of vehicle, but might get crowded during holiday season. There are beautiful views to be found and some great hikes for the energetic. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day out. There's a gift shop and toilets in the area. On a clear day you can see for kilometers. With the blue sky and ocean, get ready for beautiful pictures (no filters needed), making memories.
  • The Gateway to the West! Cabo the Roca is a place that inspires imagination of a traveler. One can feel the spirit of Columbus looking to the West and the wonder of what's beyond the horizon. It's a quiet place of meditation, at least it was when we were there and it was devoid of tourists. I recommend it for a change of scenery and pace.
