Fonte Da Areia, Porto Santo Island

Have a relaxing time at Fonte Da Areia, a quiet and serene place surrounded by sand dunes and cliffs on one, and the clear blue ocean on the other side. If you're imaginative, you can join other visitors who try to decipher the strange nature-made shapes of the cliffs, or you can just snap as many photos as you can. Although there are no bars or restaurants here, you can always bring some food and have a picnic by the sea.

  • It is interesting to be able to observe the wind erosion in sand, looks like puff pastry. The site should be more preserved. People don't respect, and eventually ruin the formations and for bringing the fossils as a memento.

  • You can visit both with LAZEMARTUR (with access for a short walk and photographing) and excursion bus (just passing through). And of course your personally transport.

  • Bad, very bad. Place with potential, but very dirty, unkempt, vandalized. Effects of uncivilized that over there.
