A great view point with superb views all around. Plenty of photo opportunities. Visited as part of a half day tour trip which stopped off here but I think the red & yellow tour buses stop here also. Or you can make your own way...More
We used the local Horario do Funchal bus number 09 to get to/from this viewpoint. There are a couple of cafe/bars and souvenir shops near to the viewpoint which was free to enter. Great 360 degree views over the city and harbour from well kept...More
Pico dos Barcelos is a viewpoint looking out over Funchal and the sea. It's easy to get to by bus and on the west side of the city, above the hotel zone. There's a friendly café there and a short walk down the hill brings...More
Came here on the yellow hop on hop off bus but both operators stop here. We nearly did not get off as the viewpoint is not immediately obvious from the bus and it did not seem well advertised. We were the only ones who got...More
We’ve seen some amazing views this holiday but the view from this place beats them all. You can see far and wide. It is breathtaking. We got there on the Yellow Bus Tour bus which ran every 30 minutes. It is well worth the visit....More

Hi, you can use public transport and top up the 'Giro' bus card at various points along the Promenade area, this card can be used on all the Yellow Public Buses around Funchal. The alternative is to catch one of the Tourist Yellow or Red 'Hop on, Hop off Buses and do a scenic Tour of Funchal and the surrounding area, they cost about 12 euros p.p. and depending on which one you catch (Yellow v Red) can last for a couple of days. This is how we visited this scenic point, got off visited the area, waited for the next one, they are usually about every 30 mins or so, not that long to wait. Also gives you chance to see the surrounding area, we went to Camara de Lobo on our trip, but there are variations. Sounds expensive, but in reality you see a lot in a short time-span. If you stayed on the bus with out getting off, it takes about 90 mins. But with hop off, hop on, it's ideal. You can book them at various points along the Promenade area and at the Booking Offices near the Marina. You also get a commentary through cheap ear phones which are available in many languages.
Enjoy, sit back and let the bus take the strain.
