Nice for a quick view.

Nice place to stop and take a quick photo if you have a car or are close to walk by. Nothing amazing.

It was not very special. There were other nice things in portugal, but this wasn't very much a thing to travel to :)

What a waves!

It's a really nice walk from Cascais city center to get here, and then you get rewarded by the sight of raw, powerful nature...giant waves crashing into the rocks, what a great show to watch!

Mouth of Hell & Beast666
Mar 2020
This is a pretty spectacular geological feature of sea arches and cliff formations. On a wilder day, water shoots up eruption-like through crevices and caves below and when you stand at the precipice watching the waves swirl and crash violently against the rocks, you can see how this spooked people and earned the name, Mouth of Hell.
Today there are safety rails and viewing platforms and some steps that lead you a little closer to the cliff face.
If you have some time, the walk from the main town along the coastline is brilliant. It takes about 20 - 25 min. We walked but many people had hired bikes.
Starting from the central beach, Praia da Rainha, we headed towards the citadel then walked via the marina. Further along we made a couple of discoveries – an old lighthouse and a great park which we detoured through on the way back. Once you get there, there are a few stalls selling sea-shells and trinkets, a cafe and a restaurant, Mar de Inferno - we had a very memorable seafood lunch here.
Over the years there have been many stories of shipwrecks and lost lives, but the most intriguing story belongs to a magician, astrologer and mystic called Aliester Crowley (or as he preferred to call himself ‘Beast666’). In 1930, when he wasn't dabbling in the occult and founding new religions, he was faking his own death, partly to escape a girlfriend and partly to promote his show in Berlin where he ‘mysteriously’ re-appeared 3 weeks later. I believe there is a plaque for him at the site but I didn't find it.

Great place to witness the amazing productions of the see on the local coast. A fantastic place to view a sunset /sunrise.

If you’re around, in Lisbon or Cascais, I’d say it’s definitely worth seeing it! It has a fantastic view! And you can find amazing cafes and restaurants around it!

Amazing Views!
Feb 2020
First of all, it can be quite crowded. Depends when you are going there. I have been there many times and quite many times, it was not crowded at all.
You will not be disappointed even if it´s crowded because the view is so amazing.

I have been there in October, January, February and March. Best time? Doesn't matter. All of the times have been great.

I walked there and it was about 30 min for the city centre. Walking there you go by the yacht club. (If you want to go faster then take a bike;) Easy to rent it.

When to visit?
The best time is sunset. Go early. Sit down. Enjoy the view. Feel the breeze.

Interesting

There's an interesting legend behind this place and why was given its name. Located 30 minutes walking from the city center, it is worth to visit. However, according to the locals, it is better when there is strong swell.

Cool place, you should come when the see level is high and best to come in the early morning to avoid crowds..
