Ponta de Castelo Branco is a really nice spot for photography at the coastline in the south-west of Faial Island (in English also known as Fayal), Azores, Portugal. Since there is no fence or anything, please make sure to take care while standing at the windy and pretty deep cliffs.

Photography Tips

You might want to use a polarizer, to get some more details near the rocks in the water. An additional ND-filter might also be necessary, depending on the time of the day you are shooting. Sunrise is in general a good idea, because the ocean behind the spot is in the west.
