  • Great views and some reasonably challenging walks around Pico Castelo. You can drive to the view point however, get walking to get the best out of the visit and the delightful area.  more »
  • It can be quite windy here but it is worth a stop to take in the views of the Marina and really most of the rest of the island.  more »
  • But go all the way to the top! Amazing little garden up there where you can enjoy a break with the food/fruit, that you brought :-)  more »
