Tours in Lagos
Dona Ana has become one of our favourite beaches and this walk offers
some unique highlights with its endless protected coves where you
can feast your eyes on the countless natural cliff formations. Although
the local fisherman have charming stories
to describe these rocky outcrops, you can let you imagination run
wild as you gaze at them from the cliff tops or while lying on the
beach. You'll be in for a good workout as you make your way down
the multitude of stairs to get a beach level perspective. Fishermen
are most anxious to take you on a worthwhile tour in and around
in the day
can extend this short walk by taking the road to Ponte de Piedade.
From the beach, simply walk back up the road to the T-intersection
and go left. This paved road will take you to the lighthouse that
graces Ponte de Piedade flanked by two
lean wind blown palm trees. For more of an adventure, take the dirt
paths on the left side of the road towards the cliffs for some spectacular
views of the rock formations, the town of Lagos and Meia Praia (beach)
in the distance.
You will discover tiny little beach coves with stairs taking you
down to ocean level. Note that there are a few homes along the way
with expressive guard dogs. Stay clear of them!
At Ponte de Piedade you can take additional dirt paths to the right
of the light house for additional cliff views, where you will spot
local fisherman at play.
