Ponta da Piedade, Lagos

4.8
#1 of 134 in Parks in Faro District
Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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.

  • Short walk down many steps to a very spectacular view. The colour of the sea is amazing against the aged rock formations. With the arches worn into the rock it is truly worth the wonder down.
  • Very beautiful place, especially during a nice sunset. If you are not afraid of heights and are a little cautious you can walk along the edge of the cliff and discover the stunning holes, natural bridges and drop-offs in the rock.
