Amazing views the length of the Island
Sep 2021 • Couples
Tuesday 28th September and this viewing point was the final stop on our fascinating 4 X 4 tour of the Island.

From this viewing point we had views out over the Port, Marina, Ilheu do Cima and the glorious 9 kilometres of Praia do Porto Santo down as far as Calheta and Ilheu de Cal.

Our visit here completed the loop as we started the tour looking down the coast at this end of the Island and now we were looking back down the coast at our first stop.

A short walk across the road from the Miradouro are the 3 windmills,  Moinhos de Vento de Porto Santo.

Excellent view ...

I personally feel the amazing view one can actually get from Portela is one of its major attractions, besides the stretches of sand to both sides, whose beauty is undeniable as well. The belvedere might equally provide an overview of part of the island and should it be visited close to the sunset might be an additional "bonus".

Fantastic view

Probably the best of 4 viewpoints on the island. You can see the length of the island beach and also the harbour and power station.

What a view
Jun 2019 • Family
Not exactly beautiful, but a certain grace and you're able to see pretty much all of the beach. Be prepared for the days when there are day trips as the area can get pretty busy

Gives a god perspective & Worth a visit if you have time

This is one of several high vantage points in the island that help to give you an interesting overview of the island, in this case the South side. We were taken as part of a tour round the island (MB Travel Madeira) and this was a good value trip around the island with a very helpful guide.

We had a little car and drove round the island. stopped here for the views and to take pictures. Its a short drive from the main resort. It would be wary if its a extremely windy day!

Great view of the island on the beach side. About a 35 minute walk from town. A small amount of seating available.

Fabulous Views

Fabulous views of the island and particularly the beach from nearly as high up as you can get on Porto Santo and a row of Porto Santo windmills as well.

Fabulous view of the island
Oct 2018 • Couples
Lucky enough to visit on a clear day and had fantastic views. It's great to see across the island and the view is great. Lazermar tours took us as part of the island tour and we could spend as long as we liked looking round and taking pictures.
