If you haven't been to Cascais you must come here and if the sea has big waves it is even better. A must see in Cascais

I loved this spot, there's a viewing platform which is where everyone walks to (its a nice view) but when i was there no one else paid any attention to the main thing here which is the hole in the rock where the sea sprays out of making the noise like a dragon. The name Boca de Inferno or Hellmouth... More

If you'd like to be surrounded by elderly people who arrive by the bus load to see a piece of Portugal's coast, this is the place to be. If you just like to see Portugal's beautiful coast without wrinkled old people, go literally anywhere else where the ocean meets the land. There's really nothing to see here. Tourist trap.

This is a very nice place, and it's marvelous when is windy with big waves. Sometimes it's too crowed but it's one of the place that you have to visit for sure! Probably it's easier to rent a car, so you will be able to visit all the amazing surrounding

Hi, if you are in the area, it's nice to go and see it but it's just the view, nothing else. If you are far, it's not really worth going out of your way for.

Nice walk from town and impressive nature. Can be a bit disappointing if the sea is quiet, but worth the walk nonetheless. It is also the start of the bike path to the Atlantic beaches

An amazing place in Cascais and free! We walked from the town centre along the coast and got there in about thirty minutes. There are also a few cafes for a bite to eat and a drink. Lovely.

I last went in Feb and it was deserted but exciting to watch the sea thunder through the 'boca'. Today it was busy with tourists although less exciting because the sea was so calm.

We ate at Boca do Inferno three times during out four night stay. The seafood is outstanding and well worth more than one visit during your stay. We particularly liked the spicy prawns and grilled squid. The desserts were also delicious
