Ponta da Piedade, Lagos

4.8
#1 of 134 in Parks in Faro District
Tall, pointy rock formations appear out of the turquoise waters at Ponta da Piedade, and collections of arches and grottos connect the secluded beaches with one another. Visit the golden sand beaches nestled at the base to see these geological rarities--they're up to 20 m (60 ft) tall--or explore the tunnels and mazes of the area via a small fishing vessel. Seek out an organized boat tour, walk along the shore, or simply hike on your own along a nature trail that leads to the top of the rock formations via more than 180 stairs. More adventurous visitors can rent kayaks here. Put Ponta da Piedade on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lagos driving holiday planning site.

  • Excellent visit to the light house, fantastic views from the cliffs, board walk make for ease of walking. Wonderful sunset, part of the real Algarve.  more »
  • Honey coloured cliffs with ‘windows’ to the sea. Windows created by erosion. Waters so azure. Most grand looking down upon these weird snapped stacks/ rocks.  more »

  • This is really stunning and romantic place! I regret I haven't been on a better cruise there-the one where we've been wasn't the best and I should think twice before I bought it. The quide was a nice man- but generally we have been with too many people and loud, dance music was just destroying atmosphere of this place...
  • Very wonderful place with a dramatic views. In summer very crowded, so it's better to go early in the morning. The best way to admire this place is from the water, so to rent a kayak is a gold idea
