All there is here is a lighthouse with a history of the place. The attraction is lost by the concrete roods and tunnels you have to use to get here.

The Ponta do Pargo lighthouse ( farol ) stands on a cliff, 300 m above sea level. Stunning views.
This lighthouse was built in 1922 and today you can visit small museum inside.
Don’t forger visit Garganta Funda waterfall, which situated also at Ponta do Pargo.

A fair drive for a view of the sea. Not much else there. A walk across rough ground to a cafe and back

The coastal road R101 is an excellent drive from the current end of the expressway through to Porto Moniz. One of the pleasant stops is this lighthouse. It is an unusual shape. There is easy parking actually at the light house, just follow the signs from the village. There are good cliff views to the west.
