and well worth the stop. There were several tour buses here so they obviously take it seriously. Parking on site and great views.

Five minutes south of Miradouro Ponta do Sossego, just by the road you'll find this spot. I would recommend visiting both. This spot has more of a "forest feeling" with more trees and different levels to walk down on the mountain side. No charge for...More

We visited the Miradouro da Ponta da Madrugada because we had read (and had also been advised by our hotel Receptionist) that it was a good place for photographing sunrise and sunset. Being keen photographers, we thought we would check it out before making an...More

This place reminds me of Ponta do Sossego. Well organized and tended too. Beautiful lookout. A family friendly destination for an afternoon barbecue.

You can't go wrong stopping at any miradouro (viewpoint) on Sao Miguel, but the ones in the Northeast/East of the island are particularly spectacular, with amazing views of the high cliffs in this area. Definitely worth a stop!

This place has a beautiful garden between the main road and the viewpoint. Nice place to do a picnic. If you love cats you can find lots of them in here.

We stopped and enjoyed the incredible scenery. It really wasn’t warm enough to stay for long. But if it was warmer we would have enjoyed a picnic lunch there. They also have a washroom which is handy. Beautiful gardens and pathways to walk.
