About:

Ponta de São Lourenço Walk: This walk runs along the eastern peninsula of the Madeira Island, where you can watch a different vegetation from the rest of the island, with a lack of trees and low vegetation, such as the Everlasting (Helichrysum devium Johns) and the Ice Flower (Mezembryanthenmum crystallinum).

The Ponta de São Lourenço is classified as a partial natural reserve and part of the European network of important community sites – Natura 2000. In this place nests several protected seabirds such as the Cory’s Shearwater, the Madeiran Storm-Petrel, the Bulwer’s Petrel and the Common Tern. We can see other bird species such as the Berthelot’s Pipit, the Goldfinch and the Canary. Along the way we are amazed by fantastic sceneries, with the Deserted Islands in the south and the islands of Porto Santo in the north (if the weather permits). From this walk is possible to see the northern and southern coasts of Madeira Island. When arriving to the end of this path we find the “Casa do Sardinha”, support to the vigilantes of the Natural Park of Madeira. After a few minutes of rest, we return by the same path.
