From Ponta do Sol to Paul do Mar

E-Bike round trip: Day 3

After a sumptuous breakfast buffet, you always drive up and down with a constant view of the Atlantic. A bath in the sea is possible in Calheta. Here you have one of the few sandy beaches. It is worth strolling along the promenade to have a drink in one of the small bars. (It is possible to charge the battery on the waterfront here, there is a free socket). After visiting the sugar cane mill (museum) (operating between March and June) in Calheta, you will continue to Prazeres, where you should take a walk through Quinta Pedagógica, which opened in 2000. Herb gardens and exotic animals are just a few of the interesting points of this estate in the municipality of Prazeres. Now you only have to go down to Paul do Mar. It is worth taking a stroll in the evening to the surfing pubs on the waterfront and strolling through the narrow streets of the small fishing village and eating there.
