Ponta de Sao Lourenço Portugal
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Ponta de Sao Lourenço

Located on the south coast of Madeira, Ponta de Sao Lorenço offers magnificent panoramas of the north coast. Unlike the rest of the island which boasts a lush vegetation, there is virtually none here due to the extreme sunshine. The area is also very windy hence the windmills in the area. Don't get too close to the cliff's edge as there are no safety rails. However, a walk along the coastal paths under the sunshine is an absolute delight. The stony, rocky terrain means you'll need to be equipped with good walking shoes.
