The steep eastern parts of Garajau seen from the ferry to Porto Santo. The site is also good for Pallid Swifts (in daylight) and to see or hear Barn Owl, which breed here.

The old whale-watching hut at the crest of Garajau. From here a small path lead down to the small summit, where birders often go when listening for Madeiran Storm-petrels at night.

The well-lit huge Christ statue at Garajau at night. The statue is visible in the top left photography (the narrow greyish column at the top of the crest).
