    Despite the relatively small height of 164 metres from the observation deck offers great views of the strip of beach, PORTE DA CALHENA and CIMA ILHEU running FARO.

    Since the Paul we have one of the best views of Porto Santo. The entire coast from the port to the Ponta da Calheta.

    This beautiful scenic spot is located north of the small island of Porto Santo, and remains just above the small port. Getting there is hard, walking (but might be a bit longish), preferably with some means. From here the view is really nice, looking towards the Sea you can enjoy the blue of the ocean, then all the immense Island Beach (gorgeous). Giving the shoulders to the ocean you can see three old windmills, and the Interior of the island. Finally you can also see another small island, on which there is a lighthouse. If you go to Porto Santo, a stop in this viewpoint may not be missing. Along with the beautiful beach, and the organ pipes, is one of the highlights of this beautiful island.
