Meaning 'Point of the sun', Ponta do Sol is one of the sunniest spots on the island, and the perfect place to take it easy. Make the most of the never-ending rays with a glass or two of the local Atlantis rosé wine paired with a seafood platter on the seafront. You might find you'll stay there till sunset.
Thanks to wrap-around mountains, exploration’s definitely on the cards if you’re the adventure-seeking type. Head high into the forests to join one of the lush levada trails, and you can look forward to cascading waterfalls, twisting vineyards and pinch-me panoramas along the way.
