Hike the Cliffs of Sintra

5 Miles Round Trip - 787.4 ft gain - Point-to-Point Trail

Lisboa, Portugal - Search Nearby - Added by Diogo Tavares

This 8 km walk has a series of accentuated descents and ascents in the beginning, and breathtaking views of the green sloping countryside as well as the high cliffs and the Atlantic coastline. Full of colour most of the year round, the flowers are most plentiful between March and May. Almost treeless, you can feel the wind every day, as this is also the westernmost point of continental Europe.

The path follows the coast and follows a rugged line, up and down the cliffs. This is coastal walking at its best: the views are simply breathtaking, with sweeping vistas of the ocean accompanied by the sounds of the crashing surf far below. There are very few trees here and a lot of open space with low scrub and grasses, which are carpeted in flowers in spring and a good area for bird watching. Parts of the trail are quite steep.
The westernmost point of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca, is the ending point of the Atlantic Walk.
