Situated just a few minutes from Lagos centre, you will find this geological marvel. Yellowish cliff-like rocks tower up out of the sea. There is a car park close by so access is very easy. You can either walk around the top and admire the amazing views or if you are fit enough, descend the many steps down for a... More

Ponta da Piedade is a group of rock formations along the coastline of Lagos, in the Algarve, Portugal. One of the best ways to explore this glorious region is by boat. While it is a fairly steep climb up and down, the views and boat ride through the caves make it all worthwhile. Understandably, the conditions are a little choppy,... More

We walked down the steps and used the local boat trips, bit steep at 15€ each as we are a family of 5 adults. Although we had a good trip that lasted 30 minutes. Our boatman didnt speak any english but we managed okay. worth a trip in a boat to the caves as you don't see everything from the... More

Loved this trip with Bom Dia tours. Nice small but very stable boat (small enough to go into the caves and grottos), shade, life jackets. We chose a morning when there was no wind and the sea was totally calm and just so beautiful. Highly recommend this trip. Especially for photograph enthusiasts. €10 per person. We only had 5 on...

The rock formations that can be viewed from this location are quite stunning. There is a parking lot near the access to the stairs leading down to the coves. You do not have to go down the (killer) stairs for the views. In the coves, there are boats that one can hire for a water tour. However, you can get... More

Sail boat to this part of Algrave. Too cold to brave the water. The weather was wonderful but the Atlantic was cold. didn't even brave the tiny inflatable boat to see close up.

The trip to Ponte de Piedade can be made from Lagos by motorboat or kayak, and opens a natural world of caves and rock formations. Try and go at mid tide on a calm sea, and you will have a different experience each time.

Had an awesome one hour trip around lagos on an eco tuk tuk. The guide was fab, stopped if we wanted to take pics and pointed out lots of interesting features, and for 10 euros each was money well spent, we give him 10 out of 10!!

The views from the top are fantastic! And it was definitely worth the effort to climb down the steps to the water's edge (and back up again!).
