  • We had already seen the lighthouse from the viewing platform in the direction of Nordeste. Looked from there already very pretty. We wanted to but closer and were therefore on the descent. Already while walking down fear and worry was me when I thought of the way back – it's really steep there. Once at the lighthouse were, we went even further down. There a few fishermen were just to shift their catch. They also showed a few tourists as they processed the fish further. Then it was the feared rise. After 25 minutes of puffing and wheezing we had done it :) Still a nice destination!

  • Well maintained monument. The landscape composed by sea, the lighthouse and the vegetation is unique. A postcard of the island. It's worth stopping to admire some local attraction.

  • Such a beautiful spot on the island. The view of the sea is spectacular. Sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility.  more »
  • We had an opportunity to visit the inside and it was interesting. On the way there was also a view for a beautiful waterfall. I recommend for the people who can walk uphill (on the way back).
  • Very nice view both of the sea as well as of the land above. Couldn't go inside but if from the outside is worth it, the inside should be priceless. WARNING: Walk down and up, don't take the car down unless it is a 4x4. Things can get complicated otherwise.
  • Steep walk, much easier to drive just up the road 2 minutes and pull over to the side of the road at the lookout and see the lighthouse!
  • Wonderful view from this spot, consider walking by foot, not going by car, because of a steep slope downhill.
  • The lighthouse guide was very friendly during visit
