Ponta da Piedade, Lagos
(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.

  • Outstanding landscapes! Transparent water! The Light house can be visited but only on specific days. The beauty of this place is the views. You can also visit by boat, you have some stairs that lead to the water and you'll find fisherman who will take on a tour! When I asked it was 15€ per person.
  • Fantastic karst landscape stuffed full of sea stacks, sinkholes and colour. There are many paths and it's worth taking a walk along the top of the cliff to see the changing landscape. Free parking with plenty of spaces, toilets and a restaurant here too. Sea was raging on my visit so no boats operating, but when the sea is rough it's a real taste of how this landscape was formed.
  • Beautiful rocky beaches, not too many people as getting to the sand is very difficult. Quite built up around it and the sea has tons of tourist boats.
  • Near to Praia Dona Ana and Praia do Camilo. From here you can discover one of the most magnificent views of Portugal! Don't eat nothing in the restaurant near the Faro ;)
  • Very impressive landscape. The caves and the cliffs are amazing and stunning. Cant miss this place awhile in holidays in the Algarve.
