It takes quite a journey to make it to Pulo do Lobo. You have to open and shut some private gates so a city slicker may not appreciate this attraction. However we found it to be very worthwhile, very peaceful, and most enjoyable.

This is a wild place. The late light makes for lovely photographs. I am not a photographer, but it is breath taking. The power of water is all about you. You can see it in all the rocks. Not sure if it is ever crowded with people, we were there all alone. It made for a powerful experience. If you... More

Definitely something to visit in the area. Nice waterfall. There is no a clear view of it as it is underneath the very same canyon where you stand. Still it is a very nice place. The road from Mertola is ok. Only the last kilometre is off road and not suitable for heavy vehicles...(there is also a sign, not very... More

No facilities other than 2 concrete tables and a barberque is available at the... More

The story goes that it was here, where the Guadiana river dramatically narrows, that a wolf once jumped to the other shore to run away from some men. Hence the name Pulo do Lobo or Wolf's Leap or Jump. The landscape is precious. Centuries of erosion carved the rock and created a waterfall. The surroundings are calm and filled with... More

First let´s say the positives: The waterfall was nice, and the surrounding area too. Despite this, it is difficult to recommend a visit from Mertola, for example, as it is a very long drive, with some indications, but nothing to let you know the remaining distance. The road is not the best either, and you have to let yourself in... More
