    Amazing and wonderful!
    It’s the best place I’ve ever seen. If you like the nature and to explore new places you should visit it. I went from Lisbon to Sintra (about 1 hour) by train. After that I went to castle Quinta da Regaleira by foot (I recommend to visit). And then I went to Cabo da Roca by yellow bus. There is a small cafe there. Prices are like at the most touristic places. I took the food from the supermarkets in Lisbon, so I didn’t spend a lot of money. Also you can buy the certificate about your visiting the most western point of Eurasia at the touristic office. It costs 10€. There is one of the oldest lighthouse in Portugal. I recommend to take warm clothes because of wind and cool. It’s picturesque place. You feel unforgettable emotions. There isn’t a big area with fencing there, where you can enjoy the views. So, I recommend to go down to the beach. The road to the beach is opening incredible views. But the road is dangerous a little because of stones, sand and other moments. I didn’t risk to swim because of big waves, but some people did it. Mostly people were sunbathing, walking and enjoying. You have to return to the main area (to the top of cliff) and stay there to see the sunset. It’s so wonderful and amazing. But be careful about the bus. Because according to the schedule, the bus must go until 10-11, but at 9 o'clock the bus wasn’t already there. Be ready to return by a taxi. My advice: always focus on positive thing😉

    Wave to the USA from here
    Beautiful views await you at this stop on the Portugal coast. The western most spot in Europe. While crowded with bus tours there was plenty of room for tourists to spread out and enjoy the views. There are also hiking trails available for those more mobile than myself

    Views are great especially coastal
    We took a little day trip and organized ourselves to Sintra, Portugal. The vista view points are very nice. You can see the light house and it faces the Atlantic Ocean. Around 1PM, not too much wind and some sun made it comfortable. A must visit if you plan to come to Sintra

    The detour here is worth the drive when visiting Sintra! Breathtaking! Try to go on a sunny, clear day!
    It truly is a sight to behold the further point of continental Europe where the sloping land and its gorgeous lighthouse meets the sea. The blue blue sea was beautiful. On a clear sunny day the drive to this point is winding and scenic. There are public restrooms for the usual € 0.50 cents, visitor center, a souvenir shop and restaurant / bar. A good place to plan a little break for lunch for an hour and to stretch your legs before continuing on.

    March is a great time to visit
    This place is one of the must-see in the area. So you expect crowds. Always. Everywhere. But surprisingly it wasn't that bad. The weather in March is changing. So we have windy, sunny and rainny weather. We were there around 2 hours and was fabulous. Souvenirs bought in the shop placed in front of Farol. Really nice design there.

If you want to visit the western-most part of continental Europe (the ‘end of Europe’), visit Cabo da Roca (some of the day tours out of Lisbon make a stop here). Great scenery and views of the Atlantic ocean and crashing waves can be had from here. It can get windy here, so hold on to your hats.

Great views on the Atlantic Ocean and I'm guessing a place to see a spectacular sunrise. It was quite windy during our visit so we didn't stay long.
