Amazing cliffs and view. Unfortunately I only had half a day to enjoy it but I´d definitely go there for longer. Don´t go by car but walk and enjoy every little part of it. Take a good camera...you´ll get good memories out of it!

Well, you will need a good pair of hiking shoes to go there, and there is no physical barrier at the edge of cliff, be careful especially it is very windy. A bit physical strength is required to hike down to the beach, you will be glad as the view if rock formation is truly unique and breathtaking.

We did many things while in Portugal but this was my favorite. Great hike from our hotel (Cascade Wellness) and beautiful views. Water Taxi ride at bottom was well worth the price to visit all the grottos at sea level.

The weather / sea have carved out so many different Rock Formations and Caves that you never cease to be amazed. The best way to see them is by boat with the smaller boats able to go inside the many caves. Afterwards you can go on top of the Piedade headland and look down onto where you have been!!

You can't really go wrong with the beaches in the Algarve. Although the water is cold, regardless of the time of year, the sun can still be hot and the views can be stunning. This wasn't my favourite spot, but it was not as busy and still worth a visit if you have lots of time and you're travelling around.

Amazing place with spectacular views! Really worth visiting! It's really easy to walk there from Lagos city - just prepare to wear good shoes and lots of sun cream.

As the header says, really! Absolutely stunning views acroas the coastline of Suthern Portugal. Not well sign posted so u have to get right into the centre of Lagos or ask someone at the marina as they can describe it easier. You can spend +/- 1.5 hours here just wandering around and down to the 'grotto'
