Sintra-Cascais National Park On a Budget
The Sintra-Cascais Natural Park is located on the west coast of Portugal and is often called the place where "the land ends and the sea begins". The UNESCO listed park is famous for being home to Cabo da Roca, a seaside cliff that is actually the westernmost part of Europe. Sintra-Cascais is interesting due to their large diversity in landscape which includes sand dunes, lakes, forests, and ocean cliffs.

The climate in Sintra-Cascais is warm and sunny year round, with temperatures ranging from 75-85° Fahrenheit from May-September with June-August being the warmest of those months. Temperatures rarely dip below 60° F even in the winter months from November to March.
One of the most popular sights in the entire park is the Cabo da Roca, a dazzling vertical cliff that is actually the westernmost point of Europe. The site is so popular that you can even get a certificate stating that you've been there after going to the top of the cliff. From Cabo, head inland where you'll find the various smaller parks, farms, and mountain ranges. A must-see mountain range is the Serra de Sintra, which is covered in lush vegetation and known for producing incredible, fresh, aromas during the summer due to all of the flora on the mountain.

The inland area of the Park is also home to the Quinta do Pisao, an agricultural part of the park where you can get a guided tour and even purchase some of the produce they grow! Then, make your way back to the coast to see the Boca do Inferno, a 150-million-year old cave that opens into the sea and makes for the perfect sunset-viewing spot!
