It has the reputation to be the best spot on the island for sunset. For me a perfect sunset is somewhere where you are just with people you love. Here you'll be surrounded by many people. It is better to go early enough (1h before) to sit on the best spot, rocks at the edge of the cliff, and enjoy... More

It is a great option for the sunset. You can just enjoy the view have a beer at the bar. If you just want to eat a snack you can buy it from "gostosinho" (a version of food truck on 2 wheels.)

I had to try this a second time. First time I went there, it started raining (a lot). But I didn't wanna give up, so I tried the next day and I don't regret it at all! There's a bar, music, and the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen! Don't leave without doing this!

I've seen a lot of posts about the sunsets not being wonderful; note that a sunset is best when there are clouds in the sky (thus, a cloudless day wouldn't put out the best sunset). Get there early, at least 30 min before sunset, as it will get crowded. There's a great bar here, Fortinho do Boldró, which has great... More

It is where all the Island Tours finish to see the best sunset, a beautiful place. It is better to go on your own as if you done the tour you are tired and craving for a shower.

If you happen to be there one afternoon you will watch a regular sunset, without surprises. If you're running out of time, don't bother, you're not missing a lot.

All I can say is what ever beach you go to this should be one as well. Just a great beach. The views, the water nothing but spectacular

Very large fort. Many levels which keep you walking quite a bit. Good exercise getting up there and then you can go to the different levels and different views. The best views of the island in one place. Worth a visit.
