We went down by foot and up for 3 €. The path was the most beautiful but you have to be careful! The cable car is absolutely safe!

Take the cable car to this beautiful, tranquil, coastal location. The beach and cliff views are great and the remoteness and seclusion of the area is something to savour. No restaurants, no bars and no souvenir shops! However, as others have mentioned, it is not...More

The view of the cliffs is great and the walk from the centre of town to Rocha de Navio is quite easy. Unfortunately there was an old lady on the road to Rocha do Navio, that seemed nice. Do not talk to her. She is...More

Despite being quite scared of heights, I love riding cable cars. That's why we came to this place while exploring the area around Santana with our rented car. The best and easiest way to get there is by car because it is in a remote...More

It is very hidden. However it's worth visiting because of the amazing view. There is a small teleferico to take you down. However you can also walk down if you dare :)
