Portugal South-West Coast Beach Photos

On my fourth day at the Good Feeling hostel I got a lift to the west coast with some of the friendly people running it; they offer guests lifts to nearby beaches when convenient. They were going to surf. I walked, swam and took some photos. Here’s a few:

Cabo de Sao Vicente to Sagres Photos

I enjoyed the Portuguese cliff-face walk from Sagres to the Cabo de Sao Vicente (Cape Saint Vincent) monastery and lighthouse in hot dry sunshine. I bought an ice-cream, sat down and ate it. Then I  continued a little past the tourist attraction, and headed back. On the way, I went for a swim at Praia do Beliche. I took the bus back from Sagres to the Good Feeling hostel. Here’s some photos:

Sagres and Vincentine Coast Portugal Photos

The next morning I took the bus to Sagres, which is the most south-western point in Europe. It was an important place during the Portuguese Age of Discovery, with a nautical school set up there by Henry the Navigator.

Sagres to Cape St. Vincent Lighthouse

After looking around Sagres I walked out to the fort (visible above the beach in photo 2) and then up the Vincentine west coast to the Cape St. Vincent lighthouse and monastery. Here’s some photos:
