Ponta Da Piedale, Lagos

4.8
#1 of 140 in Parks in Faro District
Tall, pointy rock formations appear out of the turquoise waters at Ponta Da Piedale, 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 Piedale on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lagos driving holiday planning site .

  • To do absolutely with good shoes is better. The trails are lined with sublime cliffs plunging into the ocean. Just gorgeous!

  • Place to visit. We picked up a small boat to visit the caves. It was very interesting and entertaining.

  • Coming down from the top of Lagos was about a 2 hour walk. You can continue further west once you’ve hit the furthest southern point and there starts to be nice boardwalks for a while. The variety of landscapes on the walk down here is quite incredible.
  • The best time we had in the south of Portugal. This place is near Lagos ( that itself highly recommended). The rocks created marvelous shapes in the ocean. There is a walk with a view to the ocean. In this time of year on one side the ocean and the rocks and on the other side flowers. Than we took a boat , for about 30 minutes, and sailed between the rocks. The boat tour cost us 20 euros per person and was worth the price.
