Everyone and his child photograph Azenho do Mar, a romantic cliff-side village, from the large parking lot, together with the cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean. I tried a completely new perspective here. Azenhas do Mar can be reached by the coastal road that leads from Colares via Praia das Maçãs to Praia do Magoito. The quickest way to reach the village from Lisbon is to navigate to Sintra via IC19. Once in Sintra, take the exit “Praias” and follow the signs for Colares. At Colares, continue in the direction of Praia das Macas. About two kilometres north of Praia das Macas is the village of Azenhas do Mar.
