Ponta Da Piedade

One of our favourite places is in Lagos, in Ponta Da Piedade. This is a tourist point, where the visit is mandatory at any time of the day.

(40 minutes from Belmar Resort)

In what they call the end of the world, it is one of the best landscapes to watch the sunset. This small village in the municipality of Vila do Bispo, has the most coveted beaches for surfers. It is called "the end of the world" because the caravels left that place to discover the rest of the world.
It is in Cape São Vicente that dozens of people gather to watch this moment, ideal for couples. They usually arrive early to settle in and find a comfortable place to watch the sunset.
Tip: Take a coat or a blanket, even in the middle of summer, as it is a very windy area.
