Overview

The Quay is the "ex-libris" of Ponta do Sol. Built by the Municipality of Ponta do Sol in the middle of the 19th century to allow docking and easier transportation of persons and goods. The architecture is very unique, with a large, well-designed arch built in basalt stone. The best romantic sunset in the Island.

Go there for a drink and enjoy the view, but do not eat there. The squid was tough to chew, the espada tasteless and the entire meal soaked in oil.

Nice little village with some nice views across the north of Maderia. A few cafes on the beach front which is made of pebbles. Lovely little alleyways to wander through and pass the time of day.

This is an ideal location at the edge of the Atlantic. Went for dinner with great expectations but were disappointed. The grilled prawns lacked the flavour I expected and again served with a similar salad to other restraurants we visited. House wine not bad but...More

I would highly recommend the local specialties such as caramujos and lapas (sea snails and shellfish). With a nice poncha or beer, it's the perfect blend of view, food, and fresh air RIGHT ON THE BEACH!
