This is just a short drive from Sagres. It is free to enter but small payment for museum. Good views to the med and Atlantic seas. It can get rough and windy here. Spectacular seas. Café and toilets and small museum. Outside was parking and some stalls selling food and clothes/trinkets.

This attraction has improved since we last visited, and now has a museum and shop. By any definition the views are spectacular, but after 30 minutes of views and an hour or so in the small museum that's it!! Good plan is to make a day of it by also visiting Sagres and, in particular, its fort.

The view from the top of the cliff is amazing. On 20 March the wind was strong and cold and we did not feel like walking down 200 stairs to get to the small secluded beaches but we did see some good locations and nice beaches from above. There are some good pottery shops in Sagres but most only take... More

Driving to the most southwestern part of Europe was a cool experience on a fairly cool, but sunny Tuesday.

Very windy and cool in February but provided spectacular views of the cliffs and Atlantic. The bus tour did not provide adequate time to see all the sights but gave us an overview. Locals sold beautiful woolen items at good prices here.

Drove ot to the lighthouse at Cape St.Vincent which was known as the 'end of the earth' in earlier centuries .There is plenty of parking and some refreshment vans.Being on the extreme west coast of Portugal with steep rugged cliffs, you can understand why people gave it the name in the past. The views are absolutely amazing so don't forget... More

I loved the views from Cape St Vincent. There are 2 little gift shops with friendly staff, and a very small museum (1 Euro), as well as a small outdoor bar.

Had the car and took just over 2 hours to get to from vilamoura but worth the drive, the views were amazing are only problem was it was a windy day and being at the end of the world left you freezing

We always stop here for a picnic lunch after visiting the Fort as there are washrooms and a small cafeteria. great views. Small gift shop. Portuguese sweaters for sale outside the lighthouse. Parking is close and walking is easy

The Atlantic coast of Europe has many fascinating spots with great views: a lot of rough rocks and wild ocean. The surrounding is very nice here. Great surfing spots, low prices, good food.
