Located in Fajã da Ovelha, municipality of Calheta, the Massapez Viewpoint has a privileged view over the coastal area of the west coast of the island of Madeira. It is the ideal place to enjoy some relaxing time, while appreciating the memorable scenery, marked by the vivid colours of the Atlantic and the mountains of this region.
Situated in a very high place, the Massapez Viewpoint has an unobstructed view over the surrounding area. It thus allows visitors to appreciate, for example, an overview that goes from Paul do Mar, a parish known for its century-old fishing tradition, to the parish of Jardim do Mar, visited by surfers from all over the world, who find here some of the best waves in Europe.
This observatory also allows you to see some points of interest located in the mountainous area. This is the case of the Raposeira Viewpoint, situated at an altitude of around 600 metres, or the parish of Prazeres. It is, of course, an must-see panoramic perspective.
So that visitors can enjoy this space in complete relaxation, the Massapez Viewpoint has tables, benches and even a barbecue grill.
