Zion – 12 postcards in Ponta do Sol


I have discovered a wonderland in Ponta do Sol, Madeira, last week.

It is called Zion Project.

Zion by definition:  is synonymous of “promised land” or get to the place you’ve always wanted. It is also the land of freedom that Bob Marley speaks in his songs. It’s a dream come true, and it was this dream that Filipa and Laura dreamed …

Born in Ponta do Sol, they lived and grew up by the beach.

Fate decided they would  study architecture and medicine abroad, but once they returned to Madeira, they started looking for their dream of having a bar on the beach.

That was how they discovered Praia dos Anjos (Angel’s Beach). The sunset, the surrounding nature, the sea, it was perfect and still is.

It has been three years that the Zion Project opened in Angel’s Beach  (the name could not be more appropriate).

When I asked Filipa what is the best this bar has to offer, she answered me without hesitation:

– “The people. The greatest joy of Zion is to see the happiness of others who come here. “

With a big smile on her face, was the beach when we arrived last Friday.

After the roundabout in Madalena do Mar, for those coming from Funchal, turn left.

After passing the old tunnels, we arrive at the destination.

An incredible sunset Sun, a shining sea, the waterfalls, the green of the mountains merging with the blue sea. Caipirinhas, Mojitos, Sangria and the house specialty Zion cocktail.

We were celebrating a birthday of a friend and it could not have been better.

Bars on  the beach, there are many, but as Zion, I bet there is none …
