The Atalaia trail explores the beaches, viewpoints and natural pools on the outer sea side of the island. It starts along the Caeira beach stopping for bathing in the natural pools, then continuing up to the top of Morro da Pontinha to enjoy a wonderful view of the archipelago and its smaller islands. The final destination before returning is the Atalaia beach, perfect for swimming and diving. This trip requires physical exertion due to long hikes, partly uphill.
