Create an itinerary including Pego do Inferno
Stop by the site of a spooky local legend at Pego do Inferno, part of a series of nearby waterfalls and pools. Some say a carriage once fell into the pool and was never recovered, thereby creating a portal to the underworld beneath the water. See the waterfall and its lake for yourself, and wander the rugged landscape around the cascade to view the variety of plants that characterize the Algarve's inland portion. Stop by the viewing platforms, or hop in the water for a quick dip. While you'll find parking near the site, you'll still have a short walk to the start of the wooden boardwalk and then down a series of stairs. Our Tavira online day trip planner makes visiting Pego do Inferno and other Tavira attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • To be fair, I think the authorities have done all they can to discourage people from going here - no road signage, apart from a couple of notices warning of danger. It may have been beautiful once...

  • Used to be a lovely place. Paid a return visit . There is no waterfall just stagnant pond . The infrastructure that led to the falls is gone and dangerous manmade paths exist overgrown by shrubbery.....  more

  • Hard to find. Complicated dangerous access. No waterfall dirty pond with posible sunscreen accumulated on top. In summary DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

  • Its nothing too crazy to see
  • Yeeeah
  • So worth it!! We read the conflicting reviews and almost didn't go - the Waterfall & small Lake are picturesque. Parking is close but the hike down is very challenging - I slipped & fell on my backside, but was so happy we made the hike & saw this amazing bit if nature - Tavira never disappoints. Go if you have good gripping shoes & be prepared to walk & swim in this piece of paradise. We had the unique pleasure of cheering on two rock jumpers as well, another once in a lifetime experience!
  • Very beautiful place but completely abandoned, nothing clean either by those who should take care of it or by those who use it.
