Vista dos Barcos


On the way to Vila do Nordeste, by the local road, another stop is required, this time to spot the Farol do Alnel, the island’s oldest lighthouse, and the local fishinf port. From this look-out spot one can see the lighthouse at the beginning of the steep downhill trail that descends until the fishing port. Along the descent, small summer houses, the ocean and a large coastal extension are in sight. To take the lighthouse road, (accessible by car though very steep and with many curbs), drive or walk a few km further. The visit is worth it!
