Easy to find. Just go to Sao Vicente and turn right when you find the beach of Sao Vicente. You have to pass the tunel and it is in front to a resturant called "dos juncos" next to a camping field. Park in the restaurant parking.

To Daniel Rodriguez - I'll write in Portuguese otherwise the webmaster will not aprove this message.
Daniel, Madeira is not yours to show to the rest of the world, so please do not post anymore photos or spots on this site. Otherwise you will have problems with the locals. Remember you are not a local. You're a CUBANO (mainlander)
