Why choose this experience

Traveling along the coast of the island we soon arrive at the village of Ribeira Brava, where we can visit a church dated in the 15th century. Next, we make our way to the 1007m high viewpoint of Encumeada, to enjoy beautiful landscapes overlooking the north and south coast of the island as well as the valleys of Ribeira Brava and São Vicente.

From an altitude of between 1300-1500 meters, we find the tourist attraction of Paúl de Serra and its initiation of several Levada walks that connect to different points of the island through the Laurissilva forest such as Rabaçal, Risco, and the 25 fountains.

We then stop for lunch and extra time at the seaside town of Porto Moniz – home of the largest volcanic natural pools of Madeira. On our descent towards the town, we can enjoy fantastic views, especially those of the volcanic pools in their entirety. With good weather it is possible to take a dip, so come prepared.

Next, we enjoy a brief stop overlooking the black sandy beach and natural rock pools of Seixal village Along the way, we have the pleasure of passing several waterfalls, particularly the famous and stunning Bridal Veil waterfall. Staring up at the water pouring down the mountain, you can see how the rock face has been delicately sculpted by the wind and rain over millions of years to form what can only be described as the perfect art form. Thereafter we visit the picturesque neighboring village of São Vicente, where you can visit a beautiful church dating from the 17th century before returning to Funchal.
