At 1,818 metres, it is one of the highest points on Madeira, and you can see as far as the coast from its impressive cliffs (try looking in this direction at sunset and capture images of the golden hues). There are paths from here to Pico Ruivo.
When the sun rises is does so for everyone, but not all have the privilege of watching it rise on this island. Ask any Madeiran what you can't really miss on a trip to Madeira and the answer will almost always be the same: watching the sunrise. The idyllic landscapes help to transform the beginning of another day into an unforgettable moment, be it at one of the highest points of the island (often with a show of clouds and photographs of those worth framing and hanging on the walls) or a lower viewpoint lower, right on the beach. The night before, check the exact time for the next morning's sunrise and set the alarm for two hours before, to ensure you will make it on time to settle in the best spot. If the weather is uncertain, there are webcams in the main points of the island that you can watch online, so as not to get out of bed in vain.
