Ponta de Sao Lourenco's Natural Reserve
This is the most eastern peninsula of the island of Madeira, 9 km long and 2 km wide, including the two islands Ilhéu da Cevada and Ilhéu da Ponta de São Lourenço.
Apart from the rich vegetation, this reserve is home to many bird species and even sea lions that can occasionally be seen here. The north coast is very different from the south coast. The north coast is more dramatic and not easily accessible by boat because it is more exposed to the winds and the rough sea. The south coast has seen less erosion and there are numerous possibilities to reach the shore by boat.
