Jaw dropping scenery. I'm not sure there is anything else like this in Europe. The stairs to the bottom are many but the experience will be worth it

The high cliffs which drop almost perpendicularly in the ocean are definitely worth a visit when IT IS NOT RAINING! I have seen others in Mexico which are more dangerous. It really means Point of Mercy!. Perhaps ships collided there?

A great hotel location about 1 mile from Ponta da Piedad allowed us to walk there as well as beaches Camilo and Dona Ana. Mostly sunny weather helped us handle the high winds. So good to explore the far eastern end of the Atlantic Ocean!

This place is a must go. Stunning views especially on a sunny day where you can see the beautiful blue/green water against the sandstone cliffs. We really enjoyed our time there.

This place really is beautiful. The sandstone cliffs are a beautiful contrast to the turquoise and green waters that have carved into this dramatic shoreline. The water caves are even more unique although we did not get a chance to take one of the kayak tours but since it was the dead of winter. I would love to return and... More

What a fantastic place to visit. The walk down to the rocks is amazing and the views fantastic from every viewpoint. Accessible for all with steps down to the cove. The rock is a golden colour and looks beautiful with the sun shining on it. Fabulous views and a must-see. We loved our day there.

Stunning grottos that are worthy of taking the time to see. Be sure to go down the stairs -- every angle provides a different fabulous view.
