Ponta do Garajau is located on the south coast of the Madeira island,  above the  marine nature reserve of Garajau, in Caniço.

This view point provides a fabulous panoramic view over Funchal. From there we can also see Ilhas Desertas (uninhabited islands) and the beaches of Reis Magos and Galo.

The statue of Cristo Rei was inaugurated in 1927 and it has similarities to the monument of Christ the Redeemer in Brazil.

Below the view point, there is a pebble beach that can be reached by cable car and where you can do several activities  such as  diving and snorkelling.

Don’t miss it!
