Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse

This coastal lighthouse came into operation on July 1, 1913, consisting of a square section tower, made of masonry, with masonry wedges, with east and west sides attached to a single floor, which constituted the lighthouse keepers’ dwellings.

Inside, in the center, it has a metallic spiral staircase to access the lantern. The tower was 9 meters high and the lighting device was of the 4th order, rotating, showing groups of five white flashes every ten seconds. Initially, he had an oil lamp for a light source. In May 1952 it would be electrified, having a luminous range of 15 miles, later increased to 18 miles. In 1956, a new electric incandescent appliance with automatic passage of acetylene gas was purchased.

Currently, it works exclusively on electricity, being automated. With the characteristic light of simple white lightning and a period of 7 seconds, it has a luminous range of 20 miles.

This is one of the crossing points on our Kayak Tour.

Once you try kayaking, we’re positive you’ll love it. Though many other watersports are fantastic ways to enjoy a day off the dock, we belive kayaking provides a number of advantages that make it unique to other activities:

Kayaking is great exercise: If you’re looking for an outdoor exercise, that provides a high energy workout with low impact on your joints and tissues, kayaking is worthy.

Health benefits of Kayaking: your kayaking are low impact activities that can improve your aerobic fitness, strength, and flexibility. Specific health benefits include:
1- Improved cardiovascular fitness.
2- Increased muscle strength, particularly in the back, arms, shoulders and chest, from moving the paddle.
3- Increased torso and leg strength, as the strength to power a kayak comes mainly from rotating the torso and applying pressure with your legs.
4- Reduced risk of wear-and-tear on joints and tissues, since paddling is a low
impact activity.

My name is Humberto Costa and with Ricardo Ventura, we are your host in these fantastic moments at Ponta da Piedade Coast in Lagos, Algarve, Portugal. I live in Lagos for 25 years, I was born on the other side of Algarve, near Spain and after my first holidays here, I fell in love with this paradise. The water’s my favorite element. Dive, sail, windsurf and Kayaking was my main activities. I was a federated kayaker and competed for many years. Before we started this project we worked in another company in this activity, myself for 3 years and Ricardo 5. The water it’s our element, our life! After our experience in other company, we decide to create our own project, a small company with our rules, where the guest is the priority.
