Its look-out point called Ponta da Piedade is an amalgam of grottos, cliffs and rock pillars offering an unforgettable scenery. Albeit the town is often overshadowed by its natural features, in my mind it’s still worth a short stroll. You should at least check out the town centre, the castle, its main church and get lost between its narrow streets before hitting the beach. ......
