Baía d’Abra

Located on the eastern tip of the island, Baía d'Abra offers visitors an unrivalled scenery. It is perfect for those who want to enjoy a walk and quiet moments contemplating Nature, which here reveals itself in all its grandeur.

Baía d'Abra is located at Ponta de São Lourenço, the easternmost peninsula of the island of Madeira, named after the caravel of João Gonçalves Zarco, one of the discoverers of this Atlantic pearl. The landscape in this area is marked by cliffs and creepers, due to its semi-arid climate and exposure to north winds. It couldn't be in sharper contrast with the green shades of the rest of the island.

This very peculiar peninsula is even classified as a Partial Natural Reserve, given the rarity and importance of its flora and fauna. As such, the Baía d'Abra Viewpoint offers visitors the chance to appreciate the valuable natural heritage found in this area.


It also allows you to get a close-up view of the coastline's outline, the result of erosion caused by the sea and the wind over millennia and, in the distance, the Desertas Islands and Porto Santo.
