Ponta de Sao Lourenco, Machico

4.8
#1 of 61 in Wildlife in Madeira
Green cliffs, red stone chasms, and sharp rocks protruding from the ocean foam make Ponta de Sao Lourenco a wonder that is virtually free from human influence. The area overlooks the north and south parts of the island, and on particularly clear days you can see Porto Santo in the distance. Follow a wooden boardwalk along the ridge over secluded beaches, ocean grottos, and volcanic cliffs. You'll cross valleys lined with palm trees and reach heights of 200 m (650 ft), where only the air separates you from the ocean surface. Bring plenty of water.

  • The hike is beautiful... Views are along the way... Cliffs are breathtaking... There is a Cafe at the end of the hike where you can rest drink juices... There is also another way to go back which is by boat, and the staff will provide you with useful information along the sea tour...
  • Nice view with an easy hiking trail. Wonderful colors and rough landscape. Easy walk and touristy place. 2-3 hour walk with an original madeira experience. Recommended for getting to know Madeira.
