“Your kodak moment in Lagos.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Well worth the short drive from Lagos ( tourist train in the summer) to see the rocks of the ponta da piedade. Some nice cliff trails to walk off your big meals. Little cafe also.

This place offers spectacular views. Free parking is available and if you want to get something to drink or eat you'll find a snack bar there as well.

“Cliff Walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The first time I walked to Ponta da Piedade was never ending as I had to stop and look at every cliff side, all the valleys and of course the profusion of flowers that litter the cliffs... This is a beautiful walk and when you get to Ponta da Piedade the ocean view is spectacular with all the grottos that surround the area!!

“bizarre rock formations in crystal clear water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

the ponta da piedade is a must for every visitor of the algarve and on of the highest frequentated hotspots in this area. the best time to go there is in the early morning or in the late afternoon for the sunset. an easy walkable path between the big rocks brought us down to a small pier. the panorama view is extraordinary and prersents the algarve in it best way. a very rugged steep coast with bizarre rock formations makes this place so typical. organised boat trips are available in lagos a few kilometers far from ponte piedade, the price depends on the season and the number of people in one boat. we did this trip alone per feet and it was also very interessting to go there.
