I live in Azóia near Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of mainland Europe - “where the land ends and the sea begins”. I can see the farol lighthouse through my window and in the spring the cliff tops will be covered with a carpet of colour.
This is a place for walking and I have already completed several walks, some alone and some with my family.
If anyone would like to share these walks check out my blog for details.
There are great walks on the coast in Sintra, near Lisbon. One of them takes you from the beach of Praia da Adraga, a sand crescent tucked between tall cliffs, to the next beach, Praia Grande.
Stunning views of the Atlantic coast and dinosaur footprints made 120 million years ago imprinted in the cliff face at Praia Grande make this a superb walk.
You can continue the walk to many other beaches and sights from here, or simply return to your starting point.
Ask for maps at the tourist office in Sintra.
