Portugal. Lagos. Ponta da Piedade and a walk along the cliffs.

Lighthouse Lagos Portugal

Ponta da Piedade is a cape and lighthouse in the west of Lagos, a short walk along the street Estrada da Ponta da Piedade from the famous beaches Praia do Camilo and Praia Don Ana.  While the lighthouse may not be something to write home about, the rock formations nature has created over thousands of years definitely are.

From the lighthouse you can walk down about 200 steps and take a boat trip along the cliffs and grottos or just have a drink in the nearby cafe Sol Nascente.

Cliffs Lagos Portugal

We like to take a walk from the lighthouse along the cliffs to the beaches Praia do Carnavial and Porto de Mos. This area is one of the only untouched spots in the ever growing town of Lagos. Wandering along the paths you’ll find beautiful views, rock formations and inaccessible beaches everywhere you look. Even in the peak season it’s possible to be the only person on the paths! It’s quiet and peaceful and many times exactly what we need after long nights out. At the end of the walkway you can either climb down to Praia do Carnavial or walk through the neighbourhood of Carnavial and walk down the street to Praia do Porto de Mos.
