Western Europe Beaches

  • Type: Walk Hike
  • Duration: About 4 hours | Difficulty: Moderate
  • Price from: 70€

Our hike begins at the continental Europe westernmost point, Cape Roca, where “the land ends and the sea begins”.
This ancient fisher man´s path leads us to discover the untouched beauty of wild Ursa beach, considered by Michelin Guide as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We will see this beach from above.

Continuing along impressive cliffs hugged by the mighty Atlantic, we will approach the Fojo, a natural well that connects to the sea and where the most daring can look to the 90 meters deep and find if the Romans had reason to believe that deep down there was a Triton playing music in a conch.

After, the beautiful Adraga beach, considered by the Sunday Times one of the 20 best beaches in Europe, will be our next stage. From here we will go in direction to another beautiful beach, our final goal. However, before, we will have the opportunity to go back in time, about 130 million years to see the dinosaur footprints, made ​​during the Lower Cretaceous.

Optional Experience: The day will finish in the most western vineyard in Europe. This local farm, built in the 18th century, stands between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sintra sierra. Its wines are characterized by their aging-potential, character and complexity. After visiting the vineyards and the winery, we will have a wine tasting where we will try some of the most enigmatic fine wines of Portugal. Thanks to the proximity of the sea, these wines have strong savory sea notes, being also very fragrant, fresh and balanced.

Note: If your option will include the wine experience, you will need to bring your own picnic which we will do or on the beach or inside the beautiful Sintra forest.
