“An absolute must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

I saw this place on a boat excursion and also on foot. Going by boat was an amazing experience going through all the caves. On foot is much better if you want to take some good photos. The view is absolutely stunning!

“Awesome but dangerous view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The view is awesome, but be careful with the cliffs. There are several signs but no protection at all.

“Trip around the grotto's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Well worth a boat trip around the grotto's for 12.50 each, go down the stairs to the left of the lighthouse, try to avoid around the middle of the day as we had to wait for a boat.

“Magnificent Cave sights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We visited Ponta de Piedade during our vacation to Algarve and can really recommend a visit to these magnificent caves. The boat ride started after descending some steep stairs were we where greeting by Wilson. The boat ride is approx 30 minutes and it is small boats with out-border engines, the captain on ours didn't speak any English but with a few words and signs of interest we got a tour with sign language and mutual tries of communication in an excellent way.
My wife shoot pictures like using a machine a gun and even the kids enjoyed the ride. I can really recommend a visit.
