Lighthouse itself is not special, but nice view of the ocean and cliffs.
Easy to access, parking should not be a problem.

Perfect spot for sun set.

Definetly the best cliff views of the island Madeira. It is a breathtaking experience to stand at the top of the most Western point of Madeira. The silence and quietness are really worth a detour. I had here the same feeling as standing on the north cape in Norway: solitude, quietness and endlessness.

The lighthouse is small, as all the ones on Madeira are. The museum was closed when we visited. There are decent enough views from the cliff next to the lighthouse, but nothing as good as on the eastern point of Madeira.

The views from the point behind the lighthouse are outstanding are worth a visit, the lighthouse has a free museum which is very small. Didn't see any toilets. We visited late may 2023, tuesday morning around 10:30, there was plenty of parking still available. Spent around 15-20 minutes here taking in the views, with 2 minutes in the museum.

I do not get tired of writing this phrase - * another beautiful place of the island with gorgeous views *. Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed, otherwise we would have gone to the museum...

We drove here as it was stated the most “beautiful” lighthouse on the island

It was underwhelming sadly

Exhibition was closed which meant we couldn’t appreciate the history

It’s pretty but not worth the drive

Viewpoint barely worth the trip considering it is so far West. They have built a short tunnel to the free car park, which seems rather an expensive investment. There is no toilet there.

Not only is the view from up there simply breath-taking, with the blue water contrasting with the blue sky and the high rocky walls and its barren vegetation, but the lighthouse itself is deeply connected with Switzerland - to understand why, one must go and see!

The green, sculpted cliffs remind me of the Windward side of Oahu, Hawaii. From the lookouts one can see large, rings about a mile offshore. Dino, our guide, told us that aquaculture is big business on this side of the island. We already toured a trout farm the other day, but the saltwater fish farms were on a huge scale.

We tried to get a glimpse of the statu of liberty ;)
Could not see far enough though…
Great view from the most western point of the the island.
Interesting was that the wind was coming from different directions at the same time…
