The scenery of this peninsula is legendary, and a must-see visit for everyone. If necessary, book a taxi for the day; they'll wait for you. Key things: Take plenty to drink, and some food; there is nowhere you can get anything to eat or drink other than a roadside kiosk selling ice cream, soft drinks and crisps. Take something warm...

parked up and followed the leveda path. Amazing views and interesting volcanic geology and plant life, you can get down to the beaches or stay on the higher paths. It's a pretty long walk and not for the faint hearted. There are hand rails and a pebbly path, not a good walk to do on a damp day, as previous... More

This was a highlight of our walking tour of Madeira. The walk is on a defined path and takes in dramatic volcanic geomorphology and rugged Atlantic coastal views. You can get down to the beach or stick to the higher paths, either way, it is well worth the trip out to the peninsula. We went as far as is possible... More

The most eastern end of Madeira, with spectacular views! Generally whole north coast is much more rocky than south, but this is just stunning! You can see both, north and south coasts, and usually Porto Santo is on the horizon.

My husband is a regular hill-walker, and although we principally came to Madeira to walk along the levadas, we could not miss the opportunity to walk along this rugged stretch of coastline. Although it was a cloudy and very windy day, the views were spectacular, and my husband was particularly taken with the exposed lines of strata on the rock... More

This place is a must see on the island. Really, a must see. However, it does require some stamina and effort to traverse it whole; I recommend starting it early in the day so you have enough time to stop if you want, even take a swim on 2 spots where you can go down to the ocean, eat or... More

We went a little bit late in the day, and we stopped a lot because the views were breathtaking and took a lot of pictures of everything, so 4h was not enough and we had to catch the last bus of the day to Funchal. So everything was a bit hectic but very nice, make sure you have enough time... More

One of the 'must-do' walks in Madeira, particularly for the splendid views. The walks can be as long or as short as you like but all seem rewarding. There is also another good viewpoint off the main road to the end carpark which should not be missed. Another advantage of this area in the winter is that it often seems... More
