Itinerary description

praia próxima a Punta Piedade: Tesoro del algarve, rodea al faro del mismo nombre como una lengua recortada por la erosión que se adentra en el mar, como una catedral esculpida por los vientos y las mareas en el acantilado. Permite recorridos por el acantilado con precaución y bajar por escalera hasta las bases de sus columnas a nivel del mar... Con praias próximas igual de espectaculares (Don Camilo, Dona Ana,...)
Para deleitarse en una puesta de sol con marea baja...

Lagos has many natural interest sites, including:
* Ponta da Piedade (English: Mercy Point)
* Grutas da Costa d'Oiro (English: Golden Coast Grottos)
* Laguna de Alvor (English: Lagoon of Alvor)
* Mata Nacional de Barão de S.João (English: National Forest of the Baron of Saint John), representing a varied flora that includes Pine (Pinaceae), Acacia (Acacia), Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus) and Strawberry trees (Arbutus unedo), with six pedestrian trails and six campsites. In the zone of Pedra Branca, is a Paleolithic menhir, called the Menhir of Pedro do Galo, accessible through the pedestrian trails, visitors can use the tables and picniking areas near the guardhouse for barbecues, while small children have access to a playground. A public sports field and 100 metre interval obstacle course was also constructed to attract activity, near the picnic area.

Beaches
* Meia Praia (Half Beach) —the most popular tourist beach, consisting of soft, white sand, Meia Praia is one of the largest open bays in Europe, resulting in calm seas, permitting conditions for many nautical sports, while cliffs provide sheltered coves from strong windy conditions;
* Praia Solaria (Sunny Beach);
* Praia da Batata (Potato Beach) — a small beach tucked between two small cliffs (where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean), it is known for the small music festivals that take place there during summer;
* Praia dos Estudantes (Students' Beach);
* Praia da Dona Ana (Dona Ana Beach) -its areal is slightly thicker than the beaches in the surrounding area and it is surrounded by striking rock formations. At high tide the beach is split by the geomorphology of the cliffs;
* Praia do Canavial (Canavial Beach);
* Praia de Camilo (Camilo Beach);
* Praia da Luz (Beach of Light) - located in the parish of Luz, the beach is bounded in the east by Rocha Negra (English: Black Rock), providing summer vactioners with a popular escape during the summer.
