It was referred to by the American newspaper Huffington Post in 2014 as probably the most beautiful beach in the world! The cliff of the coast is in fact spectacular and the view from the top of the cliff, impressive.
The Ponta da Piedade is possibly one of the most beautiful natural scenery of the Algarve coast. The coast is formed by dense corroded cliffs, which have been carved in rocky pillars, natural tunnels and hidden caves. The irregularly deformed sandstone cliffs stand in stark contrast to the peaceful turquoise and green deep waters, and the whole region is simply breathtaking.
