Porchat island, Sao Vicente

(550+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck
Oscar Niemeyer favored this getaway with a white lookout that gives visitors a breathtaking view over the beach and city below. However, Porchat island is not just about views and scenery; it has a city that attracts both domestic and international visitors for its energetic nightlife. Kill the day enjoying the water and sand, or stroll the street visiting local boutiques then join the party at night when the city lights up.

Hiking to the lookout takes time, but it's a great way to exercise and enjoy the island's natural assets. When you reach the lookout, you'll be greeted with an extraordinary view of the land below. Try the restuarant at the top and enjoy a hearty meal with a city view.  It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Porchat island and many more Sao Vicente attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Sao Vicente tour planner.
