  • We visited on a day when the museum was closed. Sunday. So there was not much to see. There are brilliant views from here. However you need to stay away from the edges. It's unprotected and very very ...  more »
  • Little lighthouse in nothing extraordinary at the end of a road. The panorama is nice but there's many more beautiful nearby. In season it must be difficult to park because very little space.

  • But the Lighthouse is not very impressive. Though the view from the lighthouse, of course is good and you can even compare with Los Gigantes on Tanerife. Every tourist, is their "chips". Someone who likes to go to extremes (like this lighthouse, for example). Someone climb to the highest point. I love doing lap by car around the island. BTW in the lighthouse, there is a Museum, but we didn't go.

  • Ideal and isolated place for sunset. Spectacular view over south and west coast, on a cliff, 300m above sea (westernmost point on Madeira Island). Small museum of Madeira's lighthouses, with photographs, documents and a panel exhibition about this region of Madeira.
  • Really great view. Worth the visit.
  • Nice place to visit when sun is setting.
  • Amazing place to see the sunset.
  • Amazing view!
