- Explore the locations tour boats can’t reach
- See the dramatic Ponta da Piedade up-close
While we would recommend this Portugal gift experience at any time of year, spring is the best time to try kayaking around the famous Ponta da Piedade. That’s when the surrounding cliffs are beautifully decorated with wild orchids, making for an intensely picturesque canopy of colour. You’ll climb into your kayaks in the popular coastal city of Lagos, and paddle gently past to explore the area’s beaches and caves that have been formed by nature over millions of years.
There are many boat trips in this part of the Algarve, as the scenery is so magnificent, but they’re not able to get as close to the cliffs as you will be able to in your kayaks. Admire the lighthouse, the nesting birds, and the stunning views. Experience kayaking in the Algarve as it should be done, with a professional guide who can tell you about what you’re seeing and keep you safe, and the opportunity for a refreshing snorkel on the way back - that sparkling clear water is seriously tempting after all!
