Would have loved to have visited the lighthouse but it doesn't appear to cater for tourists, all fenced off with no access. A tacky cafe and a couple of touristy shops, car park nearby. Not worth a visit in my opinion although there are some...More

You go to the lighthouse basically to experience the walk down to the grotto. We were able to park our car because we went early in the day. It probably gets crowded later but we had a wonderful time exploring the area around the lighthouse.

Went for a drive out and enjoyed the visit. Was easy to park although it was busy, just good to say we saw it.

We walked to the lighthouse from the heart of the old town around 9am. Leisurely walk, very scenic and while you can’t follow the coast the whole way the majority is along the coast. Lighthouse itself isn’t fantastic but the surrounding views from the cliffs...More

The walks around the Ponta da Piedade are centered around the lighthouse.You can walk along the cliffs but be aware some are crumbling and are not passable.

it's a bit of a trek. I would suggest you get the small train that runs up to the light house from the promenade by the bus garage. The train runs every 10 mins . 1.50 euro each.
