With abstract shapes of sandstone cliffs segregated over the years, today the Ponta da Piedade offers a surreal view with natural geological formations including secret grottos, beautiful cliffs, rock pillars that are 20 meters tall, arches that form gateways to small lagoons and tunnels carved by the water – all complementing the pristine turquoise water of the North Atlantic Ocean.
In spite of the gorgeous view from the many pathways around the cliffs, a boat ride through the water is what makes the visit here complete! See larger than life art carved out by nature herself and admire the shades of yellows, greens, gold and whites that colour the mountain’s tapestry. The nearby lighthouse is a good place to take a quick walk around. A rather secluded, small beach makes this place a rather relaxing picnic spot while the orchids and wild figs that adorn the whole place during spring season, become a loved spot for those who are romantic at heart. Don’t forget to explore the area on foot- you might just end up discovering a new cave or tunnel on your own! End the day with a hearty picnic at sunset and you have the perfect day in Lagos!
