We travelled here from Funchal in a hire car with our 19 month old daughter. We all had an interesting time. I enjoyed hearing about lava tubes, my wife enjoyed the multimedia experience (even if a little rudimentary) and Amelie loved chasing lizards and the...More
Caves are interesting to view and walk along the tubes last 40 minutes BUT the media room, film and display is simply poor.
As fellow TripAdvisor’s have said, if you are passing through the area stop and see the caves but I would not recommend...More
This is considered one of the top attractions on the north coast of Madeira, and the infrastructure they’ve built around it (parking, landscaping, visitors centre) seems to suggest that this is a big deal. The experience, however, was a little strange and disorganized. After paying,...More
We went here on a Yellow bus tour and really enjoyed these caves.
The tour starts by taking you through the caves and ends with a film about the volcanic activity that created Madeira.
Very good recommended.
We were taken with a German couple on an organised trip so we couldn’t spend the amount of time we would have liked reading the information displays where we would have actually learnt something. The group was really large and the commentary in Portuguese and...More
Stopped off as passed the signs. Nice guided walk through the lava tunnels. Took approx 30mins. Beware you may get a few drips from above, especially at the start.

We visited for the first time last year. The whole tour takes about an hour as at the end you are taken down to a small theatre for about 15minutes with a screened summary of how it all came about. We enjoyed it. Quite a bit of rugged walking with dim lighting so take care and wear suitable footwear.
