Summer is that time of year when everyone wants to get away and run to the beach. In Portugal, people think immediately in Algarve. It is true that every piece of the coast is beautiful, but for today’s post, we chose a particular place: the Ponta da Piedade! This place is so amazing that it was distinguished as probably the most beautiful beach in the world according to the American newspaper Huffington Post.
This beach is located in the municipality of Lagos about 30 minutes away from Portimão by car. As soon as you arrive you will find a free parking lot and a simple restaurant with some crepes and sandwiches. Even though you arrived from the top of Ponta da Piedade, in order to get the whole picture you should come down near the water through a path down the ravine. One must be careful, there are a few sand paths and sometimes there is no handrail or guardrail.
Regarding the beauty of the place, not worth trying to describe. It is a mix of green sea and a rocky coastline, which forms a unique combination. From this place, you can also embark on tours to the nearby beaches. We hope you all like our tip and if you go to Algarve don´t miss this spot, definitely worth to visit!
Another beautiful tour in the region is the Algar de Benagil, which is about 30 minutes by car. The place is a cave with a beach inside, a must see right?
