Beach
“It is close to Cabo da Roca, the famous westernmost point of Europe, and its beauty is able to mobilize even the most rocky heart. The rocks, incidentally, make up the scenery around you, but rest assured that the sand is fine. The result is a postcard of filling the eye, of course, but as all that is good gives work, remember that awaits you a long walk from the car park until finally reach the proximity of the sea. How to get there: the N247 Valley by itself: A road that winds the Serra de Sintra, often overlooking the sea. Once in the village of Almoçageme, just follow the signs to the beach of Adraga..”
