Full description

Cruise along the coast of Lagos and Ponta da Piedade in the Barlavento region of the Algarve and see the rock formations and hidden grottos from the inside. Get an amazing perspective of famous beaches such as D. Ana Beach and Camilo Beach from the sea. Relax in comfort on cushioned seats and listen to explanations from your skipper as you depart Marina de Lagos and sail towards the Ponta da Bandeira Fort.

Pass the beaches of Batata and Pinhão, as well as a nudist beach as you continue to the rock formations of Ponta da Piedade. Marvel at the yellow-golden cliff-like rocks, given names such as the "Kitchen" and "Living Room" for their unusual shapes. Make your way towards the small semi-circular beach of Barranco Martinho, between Canavial Beach and the Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse, characterized by a tall rock near the waterline. Continue back to Marina de Lagos, where you will disembark at the end of the tour services.

I have done two coastal Algarve trips. This experience was delightful as it was small group. We had six in our party and so it was just us and the two crew members. Excellent boat handling got us into the caves (and out again!). Very much an ‘up close and personal’ outing. Thank you for a memorable afternoon!

The weather (and waves) is unpredictable in March so I was fearful we wouldn’t get to see the rock formations or go under the arches on the boat but we ended up getting lucky and did! There were two spots we couldn’t get to because the captain said the waves were too strong for them but I didn’t mind. Still got to see a lot and going into the grottos we did go into (at least 5) was amazing! Appreciated their attention to safety. Friendly and informative guide as well. Thank you!

The cruise was generally allright. The landscape is very nice and the boat is entering through different rock formations. Our skipper Jose was skilled. What we didn't like - the skipper was a little bit late and the return to the harbour was done far away from the cliffs comparing to other boats. We would have liked to have the opportunity to admire the cliffs closer.
