  • This is the easternmost point one can drive to on the island; beyond that only on foot and at one's own risk. Once past Caniçal, the area looks a lot like the Canary Islands, rather barren but still.....  more

  • Beautiful moderate hike, arrive early to find a parking spot. There is a café near the end but was not opened - disappointing! Views and the terrain were absolutely stunning!
  • Stellar views of the rough coastline. Very small parking area but you can use the public bbq if you bring all the stuff and a rack. But if you want a cool picture you can walk down the road and up the next view point. Make sure to keep an eye out because lots of very steep ledges with no fences.
  • A beautiful viewpoint on the São Lourenco peninsula. You can park your car right at the spot so it is very quick to get there. Don't miss it.
  • Absolutely stunning views and a great walk! Make sure to have plenty of water on you.
  • Come here instead of the over-crowded Praia De São Lorenço parking to check out this area. You can explore this eastern tip of Madeira away from the crowd and with excellent views! Some areas are steeper than others so come with good shoes and maybe walking poles.
