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.

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.
