Fonte de Areia

On the coast beyond the village of Camacha, you come to the Fonte da Areia. Here wind and Atlantic storms have moulded the soft sandstone cliffs into fantastical shapes, like a giant surrealist sculpture. A path leads down past an old drinking fountain (built in 1843) through a grove of palms and wild flowers to a little pebbly beach with rock pools, at the foot of the cliffs.
