A 30 minute walk from downtown is this beautiful area. The arches, the rugged points are just beautiful. I like that it’s not roped off ( yet) and you can really stand close to the edge for a great view.

Of the cliffs and beaches in the Lagos area we went to (Camilo, Dona Ana, Canavial, etc) this was the most scenic of all! If you are exploring any of the coastline area around Lagos this should be #1 on your list. It's very scenic...More

Ponte Piedade is a must when visiting Lagos. The views are fantastic, it is an easy walk on top of the cliffs. The long stairway down to the grottos are definitely worth the challenge back up. Down at the grottos it is very nice to...More

In summer 193 steps queuing up to a tiny harbour. In winter worth your while. This location is way too small for the bus loads of tourists that want to visit here.

Ponta da Piedade was one of the most beautiful and scenic spots that we visited along the Algarve coast. It featured rugged cliffs, beautiful rock outcroppings and grottos, and awesome colors. The views from every vantage point and in almost every direction were absolutely amazing....More

The view is fantastic and there are so many great angles you will take plenty of photos. When you get home, one of these will be the one you use as a screensaver. Access is free. Just park in the lot and walk out. You...More

The walk around the cliffs is easy as there is a boardwalk, go in the evening, lighting is best and you can take in the sunset

I think there is some public transport in the form of a bus, but it should be rare. That time of the year, temperatures are still mild, but you may catch some wind and rain.

I have only walked it, it would be possible to cycle but I think you would spend a lot of time on the roads instead of then cliffs as it can be very narrow on the rocks and not cyclable in some parts at all. The cycling... More
