Miradouro da Portela (viewing point)


This magnificent viewing point, located 1.6 km from Vila Baleira, is preceded by an avenue of palm trees and by a windmill.

From here, you enjoy a breathtaking and panoramic view over Porto Santo beach (on the west) and the conical sahpe of Baixo peak and the Islet of Ilhéu de Cima (on the east).

On the way to this viewing point, do not miss a visit to Nossa Senhora da Graça chapel, built in 1851.
