We were on a coach tour and this was an early stop on the way. You can get some good views of the surrounding area. There are clean toilets and a cafe here as well as a few stalls selling tourist goods.
This is on both the Yellow and Red bus routes so worth a hop off to see and you will still have time to have a drink and hop on the next bus.

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.
