Lovely lunch here. The food is good and service was excellent. Squid was wonderful together with prawns slightly over cooked. The bolo do caco was good too.

Ponta da Calheta is located on the South West of Porto Santo´s island. Is facing another small island, Ilha da Cal. On clear days, one can see the North part of Madeira island, located South Wets of Porto Santo.

A good place to visit, with a lovely beach and view, with a few bars to enjoy the view. This place is usually windy tough.

The beach and restaurant are lovely, lots of free parking, good food, especially the fantastic hot Scabbard fish sandwich. A Coral beer always goes down well !

End of the island. Nice beach with a restaurant. Nice for a stop or lunch/dinner. Nice view of the island and lavarocks. Its a bit remote from the centre of the island.

Beautiful sand beach at the end of the road but during our visit the waves and wind were high so not safe to swim. It may be fine during the summer though. There is a small cafe too.
