  • The pair died after falling from the cliff top at Pescadores Beach in Ericeira Portugal

An Australian appeared to have been taking photos with a British tourist when the pair fell down the cliff at Pescadores Beach in Ericeira and died, the National Maritime Authority told Portuguese news agency Lusa.

Emergency teams in the resort of Ericeira - about 30 miles north of Lisbon - found a mobile phone on the wall where the couple are believed to have lost their balance, plummeting around 30 metres (98 feet) onto the beach below.

A couple trying to take a selfie at a popular tourist spot in Portugal plunged almost 100 feet to their deaths, authorities said.

"Since we found a mobile phone on the wall, everything suggests the victims might have been taking a selfie, when they allowed the phone to fall, leaned to grab it and fell".

Michael Kearns, 33, was holidaying with his partner Louise Benson, 37, before the pair were found dead on a popular surfing beach in Portugal.

The couple left Australia in January this year to go travelling and were in Portugal to attend a friend's wedding.

The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed that one Australian had died while the British Foreign Office said a British woman had passed away.

This isn't the first time tourists have fallen off from the wall.

Pescadores Beach, which translates to Fisherman's Beach, is ringed by cliffs and a wall of up to 40m high.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said: "We are in touch with local authorities following the death of a British woman in Portugal and are providing support to her family".

While investigations continue, Corfina Media reported police have ruled out murder as a possible cause of death. Picture: SuppliedThe large stone wall sits 30m above the popular surf beach.
