Cabo de Sao Vicente, Portugal

A short distance away from the town of Sagres, Cabo de Sao Vicente is the most southwestern point in  Portugal — some say in all of Europe. The famed red-and-white lighthouse backed by epic rock formations and misty clouds over the Atlantic is the perfect setting from which to view one of the most incredible sunsets you may ever take in.

Just make sure to check the weather before driving up here from the Algarve  — it can often be windy, foggy or even rainy, especially once the warm sunshine disappears for the evening or hides behind a cloud.
