Have you ever been to Ponta da Piedade?

This is definitely a place to visit! Ponta da Piedade is one of the main tourist spots in Lagos and in the whole Algarve.

This wonderful corner located in Lagos is a set of incredible rock formations that result in a heavenly space to explore and, perhaps, to dive!

You can choose to come here by land, since you will have, from the Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse, carved staircases that will guide you easily and quickly to the place.

Another way to access this small corner is by sea. Lagos promotes several tours by the sea through the caves of Ponta da Piedade so that you can enjoy in a unique way a day like no other.

We also advise you to take a deep breath when you arrive, as we do not know if you are prepared for such a privileged view over a crystal clear water where the sun falls and its reflection illuminates the rocks. It is truly stunning

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"It was a perfect tour, we saw a lot of Dolphins on that day. The Katamaran is perfect for family, our kids enjoyed it very much."
★★★★★
"Brilliant - all of it! Steve and his skipper (Zane I think) plus Zuka the dog were great. Terrible weather conditions (sea mist!), but they gave us extra time and went along way out but worth it as we saw dozens of dolphins swimming right around and under the boat. Well done to all, great experience which we would recommend"
★★★★★
"We choose to go on safari to see the dolphins. And because they have to go and look for them, they said the chances to see the dolphins are up to 98%. In 2019, they had just 2 unsuccessful trips. We were the 3rd one. However, what we really appreciated at Days Of Adventure staff was the fact that they offered us a free trip the next day, when we have been more lucky and got the chance to see a beautiful show made by the cutest dolphins ever. Highly recommend this company! Everyone is very friendly and wants to make sure you spend unforgettable time while you are on holiday."
★★★★★
"We had an amazing trip, it took a while to find the dolphins but Steve and Andrea done everything they could to spot them and it definitely did not disappoint, the dolphins came right up to the boat and were swimming next to us for about 30 minutes, they seemed to enjoy it just as much as we did, the staff were lovely and very informative and zuca made the trip even better. You can see how passionate this company is about the wellbeing of these beautiful animals and I agree with them that there is no better way to see them other than in their own habitat, The best day out we’ve had in Lagos by far and we would definitely recommend."
★★★★★
"We had a lovely morning out on the boat. We saw lots of dolphins and were able to get a good view of them from the side of the boat and then up on the viewing platform right at the front of the boat. The crew made sure everyone had the chance to go up to the viewing platform if they wished. My 3 year old son loved the whole experience! The crew were very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about the dolphins and were happy to answer questions. Definitely recommend this trip!"
★★★★★
