“A wonder that lives up to its name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

The "Mouth of Hell" is a fitting name for a wonder that entails crashing waves on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic. It's quite a hike by foot from Old Town Cascais and the train station to get here (approximately 25-30 minutes so pack some water if it's summertime), but simply head west along the coastline from the city center until you hit civilization again and these cliffs are on your left. Climb your way to the cliffs' edge and dangle your feet while enjoying the fresh air available nowhere else in Lisbon. A good half hour is more than sufficient to soak in the sights, but well worth the long walk.

“To me..a wonder of this world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Hailing from Goa....I am used to sandy beaches...this was like a wonder of the world for me. The Atlantic...oh so blue and the manner in which it's waves have bored or sculpted out the rocks. Sure is a boca de inferno or Mouth of hell...no coming back from this!!

This sight/site took my breath away!

“Good views”

The ruggedness of the sea and rocks and views of the coast line. The daily market was nice to browse local goods.

“surprising nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

quite breathtaking, I must say. The rocks are impressive, big and black and the water creates a wonderful color contrast.
It's very near to the hotels in the area, so just go on foot ;)
