Stopped here for a short visit on a tour. It was really nice and not busy or crowded. There was a couple of paths to walk on and a great viewpoint looking out to sea. Really clear waters near the edges. Good area.

We’d visited the nearby waterfall (Garganta Funda) and thought we might as well visit the lighthouse while in the area. Views along the cliff face and down to the sea far below are certainly awesome but other than that there’s not really much to see....More

Are you in madeira and want to see the sunset? That is definitely the place. It’s amazing there. No touristic at all. This is a balcony to the Atlantic ocean...enjoy the sunset!

A lot of effort has gone into the historical and enlightening displays. Visitors would have enjoyed it more with some translations.

We came to this lighthouse as we were recommended, but only to find that only organised trips were allowed up - very disappointing!!!
