Visit the dramatic Ponta da Piedade Coast

Take a trip to see the Algarve’s dramatic coastline just south from Lagos. The sandstone cliffs and rock formations that make up Ponta da Piedade are spectacular and naturally weathered to form tunnels, pillars and hidden grottos. One of the best ways to enjoy the landscape is on foot, where you can follow the steep steps up to the top for dramatic views of the coast either with the sun shining or at dusk when the sun starts to set along the horizon.

Another way to visit is by boat, which leaves from Lagos. Cruise along the calm water to Ponta da Piedade before getting the chance to sail in and out of the tunnels and pillars. The best thing about traveling by boat is that you can visit the fairy tale like caves and see the striking rock face of this natural wonder.
