Full description
The Southwest tour first stops at Ponta Do Sol, the sunniest part of the island. From this coastal town, you'll continue to Moledos, where you can enjoy the magnificent view over the fishing village of Madelena do Mar. Next stop: Calheta, with its artificial sand beach and sugar cane factory. At Prazeres, you'll visit the Prazeres Educational Farm (Quinta Pedagogica dos Prazeres), housing various animals as well as an array of aromatic herbs. At Ponta do Pargo, discover an incredible lighthouse built in 1922, with the most unique part of the island as your backdrop. In Paúl do Mar you'll find a traditional fishing village which also happens to be a great spot to surf. From the viewpoint above, you can also enjoy the fabulous scenery over the mountains and the Atlantic. 'Ever-pretty' Jardim do Mar is one of three pebble beach villages: Portinho, Enseada and Ponta Jardim. These beaches attract locals and visitors alike in search of the beauty and calm of a natural environment. Tour finishes at Madelena do Mar, a tiny fishing village overlooking the sea cliffs of the southeast coastline. The location and climate help make this the largest banana producing area on the island.
