Ponta da Piedade, Lagos

Categories: Geologic Formations, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web
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. Ponta da Piedade is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Lagos Edition.
