Not more than a nice impression of what the coast of the west of the Algarve has to offer. The praias near Sagres and along the west coast are of such a rare beauty. Steep cliffs and wild water with an odd surfer here and...More

Beautiful views from above the beaches and ocean. The walk from our Carvi Beach Hotel took about 15 minutes. The road to Ponte da Piedade is, of course, accessible by car. The pathways at the point require careful walking, and sturdy shoes help. Not safe...More

We visited Lagos with the sole intent of taking a boat trip to Ponta da Piedade. We were not disappointed. We sailed with Blue Fleet and had a terrific time aboard. Our captain was very knowledgeable and informative. Scenery was spectacular

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
