The Porto de Mos Bay reefs provide dives filled with marine life. Large rock formations, walls with cracks where we always find congers, lobsters, shrimps, crabs and many other animals that fill this reef with life.

Ponta da Piedade is a geographical point of extreme importance for navigation, and also offers excellent diving conditions. Their position and size influence the sea entering the Atlantic and protects all ofvLagos Bay.
In bad weather its not and advisable place for boats, as evidenced by the nearly 200 anchors already found in the area.
