Go in the morning when the sun is just coming up over the cliff. I went in December, so was not crowded at all. Perfect temperature, probably couldn't swim, but go meditate. Unbelievable scenery, fun climb down.

Beautiful walk along Cliffside from Cabo de Rocca (would be treacherous in bad weather) with the beach emerging at the end. Slight scramble to get to beach- trainers and hands used even in perfect weather. Difficult walk down to but totally worth it- the difficulty...More

After about a 25 minute drive from Cascais, we arrived to the Ursa beach. It’s a tough walk down to the beach, but once there it is a really nice place to stay at for some hours. Note, there is no sales or infrastructure of...More

nice beach especially if you are photo-lover. Hard to access though, so make sure you plan ahead and have snickers for the down-ride. Water again, is very cold to swim even during summer and it can get really windy as well.

It is truly a gem of our trip to Portugal. I've never seen beaches more beautiful. We took a train from Lisbon to Sintra, got to Cabo da Roca by bus. The 30-minute hike from Cabo da Roca to Praia da Ursa makes the whole...More
