This spot had such an amazing view. It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. It's a hike down to the actual beach but the view from the top of the cliffs is still spectacular

It's about half an hour by foot from Cabo da Roca. 15 minutes of walking on the top of the cliffs and then 15 minutes steep decline to the beach. And it is so worth it!! It looks unreal, the most beautiful beach I've ever...More

We discovered this gem by chance and it’s one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve seen. You just have to bear in mind that it’s a real hike to get there (20-30 min) so wear good shoes. We were in flipflops which made it all...More

So, this is a must. You have to go there, no matter how. Bike, hike, car or bus. You’ll have to be careful when hiking down. Need to have any athletic shoes. Use the left path or you can hike directly from Cabo da Roca....More

Wow!!! Fantastic nature, almost overwhelming. Would definitely recommend to visit Praia the Ursa if you have the chance, but be aware that the trail down is steep and challenging. I wore sandals, but wish I had better shoes. I had to walk really slow not...More

It is very close to Roca cape, "Cabo da Roca", the most western point of Europe. It's an amazing beach with huge rocks that look like a bear (Ursa in Portuguese), and white sand. The access is difficult and long but it's worth it!
