even though what we had were clouds in the sky and not a blue ocean. Amazing winding road down to the beach but you can get down using the cable car. We brought a picnic and the ocean was a glassy surface when we were...More

We were lucky to have a lovely warm sunny day when we visited, the views are breathtaking and definitely worth a visit if you're in Madeira. There's also a nice little cafe nearby and a cable car if you want to go down to the...More

Great big Jesus statue by the cliff’s edge. It faces out to sea and it’s pretty close to the edge so it’s difficult to get a good picture from the front. The site has picturesque views of the coast and is worth the short, easy...More

Amazing viewpoint, it deserves 100% the visit. Must do: the path down to the peak on the ocean, not in super good condition but safe and ending with fantastic spot from which you will admire the coast

In a wheelchair, Madeira can be challenging but this was a lovely trip. Easy to get to by car, there is a car park right there and a short walk/push to the statue. It's a bit bumpy but we made it with a strong pushing...More

We saw the statue as part of a tour and were impressed, there are fantastic views along the coast and the cable car down to the beach is fun and good value at €3 return. We also had a nice lunch down at the beach.
