This lookout is a must see when visiting Santa Maria Island. The views are breathtaking. It's a v3r romantic spot to watch the sunset. The beach strip is beautiful and the overall environment is relaxing and welcoming. A MUST SEE

Amazing view, a full on view with all the vineyards in the background. Perhaps the best view on all of Santa Maria. Stop in on your way in or out.

There's a really winding road on the way there from Vila do Porto, but there are lots of spots to stop and take in the views. When you finally get to this one though, it's incredibly. The blues of the water are incredible. Well worth...More

Impressive views from this view point, including pic-nic terrace with stone tables. Must stop there and just forget the time passing by, feel free and enjoy the many views from there. Attached picture taken from this view point.

Great vantage point for the bay. Also a good place to have a Braai or picknic . Start your hike here towards Santa Barbara or just chill .

Breathtaking – they use this awful word so much in tourist brochures, but this view really does do it. Get there mid-morning to get the sunlight fully on the hillside, the houses and the sea sea. Glorious
