This is the best view you can get from the city of Praia da Vitoria. The place is very windy. You can also go there by the road or climbing an infinite number of stairs.

We visited it in early April, and it was very windy at that time, but the views here are worth the stop, you can see the hole bay, marina, bar zone and beach.

Cheated a bit and went up by car. Good views of Praia, from the beach up to the port. Not worth the climb unless there is a need to exercise.

Great views for picture taking. This is just a quick stop to take selfies and view the beach. Bring along your scarf.

This stop had beautiful views of Praia da Vitoria below. It was nice to look down on the town, and out on the ocean!

We traveled here with our private tour guide, Gui Bruges. We loved it here. Its such a wonderful blend of the ocean and the land. Simply spectacular. Gui really gave us a grand tour. It was fun and informative. We enjoyed one day with him...More

it was a bit chilly in December, breezy, but the view of Praia is unbeatable! you can see for miles, The Madonna sculpture is right behind you. I guess it was a George Bush gift for the Iraq war.
