Ponta da Piedade. Lagos. Portugal
Lagos, Portugal

The western Algarve comprises of vast sandy beaches and towering cliffs, many of which have been eroded and shaped by the powerful seas that batter the coastline. Along this fascinating coastline, the Ponta da Piedade is considered as the finest natural feature, with the cliffs of the headland carved into rock pillars, natural tunnels and hidden grottos. These golden sandstone cliffs of misshaped angles stand at stark contrast to the deep turquoises and greens of the sea waters, and the entire region is best described as simply stunning.

There are coastal paths that cross the cliffs, but the best method to explore the Ponta da Piedade headland is to join one of the boat tours that can navigate through the maze of unique rock formations and sea caves. The Ponta da Piedade makes for an enjoyable half-day excursion from Lagos, and hiring a fishing boat to discover the cliffs is a truly wonderful experience.
