    Watch the Waves...

    Sometimes the waves crashing into the beach can get pretty big and violent. As grand as they look, it's not pleasant to be dragged underwater with your face in the sand, or smashed to pieces on razor-sharp rocks. Be CAREFUL when you swim.

    Me in my Undies on a beach in Sagres

    I guess this is a warning that only fools like me should heed. Make sure to bring a swimsuit if you visit Sagres! I forgot mine so ended up relaxing on the beach in my underwear. Good thing I wear boxer-briefs! Kind of embarassing, but I got over it. Even so, I felt like a bit of a chump (especially when talking to girls!).

    While visiting the cape you will see many fisherman on the cliffs (I think that’s very dangerous, but I guess they are used), The water was calm today, but imagine on a rough day!!!! With this boat ….

    it is dangerous to get near to the end of the cliffs, even if all we do it to get a better shot, well I normally do not get too close due to the vertigo hehehe.

    I am surprise not more people get killed there as there is no protection, but in that case it will not look as nice

    cliffs

    looking straight down

    Perhaps in a previous life I died by going over a cliff. I´m really leary of them, in a motherly way. This area is full of shear cliffs. I would not take small children here... I think it would just give me heart failure thinking about what (could) happen. I´ve also heard that the beaches a little farther up the coast have dangerous undertows...
    But if I were already dead.. hey, what an excellent place to rest.

    Fisherman down a cliff

    Some of the local fishermen are not happy with fishing from the top of the cliff so they climb half down the cliff to find a better fishing location .
    Looked to me like a very dangerous thing to do.They would not catch me doing that.

    Careful on the cliffs

    I need to follow my own advice

    As beautiful as it is be careful when you walk on the edge. A few years ago a German tourist fell off of the edge and was killed. The rocks can be slippery, especially if it has rained.

    Two men fishing of cliff

    Two local fishermen fishing from somewhere down a steep cliff . I have no idea how they get down the cliff.
    A pretty dangerous way to catch some fish.
