Lisbon Chronicles | Ursa Beach (Praia da Ursa)

Next to Cabo da Roca - a cape close to Lisbon, in the Sintra region - the Ursa beach (Praia da Ursa) is the most western beach in Europe and perhaps one of the most stunning beaches I've ever visited. Clear, bright waters (icy too!), pristine, white sand, just a bunch of people and an awesome landscape make this beach a spectacular place.

But all good things come with a cost. There is no direct access to the beach and you have to go down (and then up) a cliff for hundreds of meters on what can hardly be described a goats path. The next day my legs's muscles hake with all the effort, but the memories I hold from the place make it worthwhile.

You can walk from Cabo da Roca, enjoying the nature and the great views of the coast, and then go down to the beach. Make sure you get some shoes fit for the challenge (I was wearing Havaianas, and it wasn't the best choice, believe me!), and some water and food for the day. If you love photography, don't forget your camera as the scenery is absolutely breathtaking.

Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!

  4. Beautiful rock formations and that water looks so clear!

  5. What a picturesque place with amazing rock formations. I would imagine poets and artists getting lots of inspiration in a place like this.
