Confirmed! Praia da Ursa (Ursa beach) is right next to Cabo da Roca and after leaving the car on the road that lead to Cabo (unless you have an all-terrain is the most advisable) we have a path of about 40min walking that leads down to the beach – take good shoes! There it wasn’t 40ºC so the way down wasn’t that hard!
The beach is as beautiful or even more beautiful than the photographs allow you to see. The water was wonderful and apparently, according to some friends who had been there before, we got a calm sea for what is usual. Apparently it had more tourists than Portuguese, which got me to think that this beach is better known outside than in Portugal, or else to conclude that the Portuguese do not take so much trouble to get there.
We stayed on the beach until 7:00 pm and only came back because other commitments forced it… The climb was the most difficult, but it is part of a perfect beach day on a Saturday in August!
