Postcard from Ponta da Piedade, Lagos Portugal

{EN} Situated in the south of Portugal, Lagos is the perfect summer escape only 3 hours away from Lisbon by car. Actually is a must-see destination for those who are seeking incredible landscapes replete with panoramic views of the ocean and secluded beautiful beaches.

Once in Lagos do not miss Ponta da Piedade, the most breathtaking place I`ve ever seen. Expect unforgettable sunsets, azure blue waters and unparalleled views of the ocean from the limestone cliffs framing the beaches. You must visit Ponta da Piedade twice and it`s easy to see why, first in the morning and then in the evening for an endless gorgeous sunset. (Psssst: bring with you sunscreen, water, sunglasses and a hat). Small boats can take you for a short trip nearby just to get a different but still wonderful perspective. You’ll risk your entire data roaming allowance to get that Instagram perfection.

On the way to Ponta da Piedade stop off at beautiful beaches along the coast: Meia Praia, Batata Beach, Dona Ana Beach, Camilo Beach (so gorgeous, so colorful!) with its spectacular rock formations and golden sand.

Meet the locals and try to figure out where to find the best restaurants (away from crowded touristic streets) and what to see around during your stay. The food here is fresh and delicious with locally sourced fish, octopus, crabs and prawns arriving every morning.

What are you waiting for? This no longer has to be just a dream, book your ticket and grab your camera, the adventure is about to begin!
