The rustically decorated “Ponta d’Tum” bistro offers a menu based on Tarrafal local gastronomy.


Appreciating a magnificent view, you can enjoy a freshly caught fish, a wide range of seafood, tasty entries, salads and freshly squeezed fruit juices among other dishes prepared from delicious and healthy local products.


On the terrace & pool, you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, with live music (with local musicians) or simply sit back, watch the wave movements, fishing boats, read, or simply do nothing ...

Sometimes a bench of dolphins come to visit us in the bay. This show is not guaranteed, but happens quite regularly. What a joy!

When the sea is too rough, it is also a pleasure to make a few fathoms safely, or even a water aerobics session. Then relax, a book in hand, or sunglasses on the eyes, get yourself a tanning session in the January sun ...
