Ponta da Piedade

If you are the nature lover you should start from visiting Ponta da Piedade (Lagos) – ocean coast caves. These can only be found at the volcanic coasts. At the highest point caves are about 20 meters height. There are some rocky pillars, arches and gates which creates an unusually beautiful landscape. Almost in every cave there is a hole where the sunlight comes in and changes the water colour. Also some caves have small beaches inside. There are special tours for it and you can find tickets at tourist information or in some beaches. Ships sail from Lagos, Portimao, Armacao de Pera towns directly to the Ponta da Piedade, but you can also choose to go there by boat or canoe.

Portugal; perspectives of the Algarvean coast

A week into our summer vacation in Portugal and I wake up to another blue sky in south Algarve. Our apartment in Lagos is surely finer than our home in Finland, I muse and happily open the terrace doors. The terrace overlooks the communal pool and all is still wonderfully peaceful. Only a bright yellow lilo is slowly floating in the pool with a side-dish of a palm tree shadow.
