“Not accessible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is located at the Ponta da Piedade, but is inaccessible, which was extremely disappointing. Even limited access would be nice.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Amazing view of the cliffs, and of the rocks coming out of the blu see. If you go down the stairs you arrive at the bottom of the cliffs where you can take a boat and explore the caves, but I recommend to do it with the kayak is definitely better.

“Great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

It is a nice location, but don't go there on foot.

It is a long walk, so best go by car, bus, or bike!

You've seen one, you've seen them all, what else can I say? The drive to it is quite spectacular....

“Stunning scenery and free !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

A short drive west of Lagos, the scenery from the cliff tops is magnificent and very beautiful. There are some steps down to the water line where local boatmen await to take you on a tour of the caves - this is well worth the cost and is usually accompanied with an amusing commentary as some of the shapes in the rocks etc resemble famous people.You can walk around the top of the cliffs and peer down to the sea , and check out the view across Meia Praia to Alvor, Praia da Rocha and towards Portimao. There is a small cafe next to the lighthouse, and a bar/restaurant a few hundred yards back towards town. Regretfully no lift or wheelchair access down to sea level but still well worth the trip for those who cannot manage steps.
