Ponta de São Lourenço
Ponta de São Lourenço
Legend has it that the name of this area is as old as 1420 when Madeira was discovered and is due to someone on Henry the Navigator’s ship having yelled “Oh St. Lawrence, arrive!” when they came round the easternmost point of Madeira. This area is completely different from the rest of the Island of Madeira with high sea cliffs and lots of caves and beaches on the coastline. It also has a black sandy beach called Prainha, which is very popular with bathers in the summer.
