Cabo Sardão, Portugal

Cabo Sardão, is an astonishing cape over Atlantic Ocean in southern Portugal. It will leave you dazzled with its amazing cliff views, as well as several arms of steep and crested land rock stretch over the sea, on which the blue waves clash with explosions of white foam.

Cabo Sardão is an incredibly beautiful and astonishing cape over the blue Atlantic Ocean, in southern Portugal, near Odemira, in the famous Alentejo coastline. It is a graceful piece of land that sticks out between the cape of Sines (known for its beaches) and the cape of São Vicente (the south-westernmost point in Portugal), and gives you incredible views reaching the horizon for both of these sides of coast. Several arms of steep and crested land and rock stretch over the sea, on which the blue waves clash with explosions of white foam. You can take small hikes to both sides enjoying the views. Be sure to notice the white-storks nests almost hanging over the cliffs in this unique storks nesting-ground. And, if you’re lucky, you might also catch a glimpse of some other rare and interesting birds.

In this cape you will also find a lighthouse. It is a typical Portuguese quadrangular white tower with a cylindrical lantern on top, constructed back in 1915, which will be hard to miss with its 17m. A particular characteristic of this lighthouse, that differentiates it from all other of its kind, is that the tower is constructed facing the land and not the sea. Some people say that probably the constructor had the building plant turned upside-down…

Cabo Sardão is a mandatory stop, and a personal favourite of mine, to anyone travelling along the Alentejo coastline (maybe going from Lisbon to Algarve), famous for its views and, of course beaches.
