“Grotto tour a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Hiked from Luz to Lagos and embarked with Victor for one of most incredible boat tours yet! Seeing the rock formations from above on earlier hike and at sea level on grotto tour was awesome! Not to missed!

“Boat tour a must--but keep your head down! :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

The scenary at Ponta da Piedade is spectacular from the cliffs; however, you really should descend down to the water and take one of the boat tours through the caves. I'm pretty sure it just cost us 12 Euro's--and the captain takes you in and out of caves down the coast past Praia Camillo (very private, non commercial) and Praia Dona Ana which is the one we chose to visit after our cave tour. The water is crystal clear--you can see right to the bottom! Just awesome. And the cliffs and caves offers great opportunities for the photographers out there! Just watch your head entering the caves--I'm a relatively big guy and was a bit worried that I'd be decapitated entering one cave where we were required to lie flat in the boat!! :-O lol

“One Step Beyond”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Interesting views all round - make sure you go down all the steps to really experience the views. Be careful on the cliffs though, it's very scary if you go near the edge - I lost my bottle at one poibt and I'm 50 (on second thoughts that's probably why I lost it). Be careful with mobile young kids - might be an idea to keep them close/secure. Doesn't take very long so I'd suggest combining with a trip to Camilo beach and it makes for an interesting couple of hours.

“The Point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Great place for the views of the eroded rocks, distant prias, east to Alvor, and north. A motorised train, "Tchu Tchu", is just Euro 2.5 pp, and a pleasant trip between Lagos centre and the Point (though we walks sometimes as we walk in the UK).
