Vereda da Ponta de São Lourenço is an stunning trail that is great to capture photos of the eastern tip of Madeira Island. This trail of moderate difficulty has stunning panoramic views from north to south, and takes around 2:30 hrs to complete. You might also come across the rare plants and diverse fauna of the area along the trail, maybe even a monk seal if you're lucky, so be on the lookout. It gets pretty crowded so be sure to arrive early!
Definitely better for sunrise!
