    Ingenious levada walk with impressive waterfall and great views of the valley and towards the sea! Definitely a highlight on Madeira!

  • The tour is nice, but definitely nothing for people who are not afraid of heights. On a long distance delimitations to the abyss are missing. I would not plan this tour with children.

  • Breathtaking! Here it is worthwhile to take a short break and just to watch.

  • Super nice Levada hike. Sometimes a bit slippery. As with all Levada hikes, slip-resistant shoes are required and watch out for unsecured passages. Keeping this in mind, the way is easy to go and you will be amazed.

  • The exposed spots are at the beginning of the tour. Tip: run the section in the opposite direction. 1.5 hours there and back, perfect for non-vertigo-free people. Very nice views, a lot of green.
    There is no tunnel on this path.

  • And if you get a little wet, it serves refreshment.

  • You have to go behind it. In warm weather a nice little refreshment (we only met with some water, no problem)

  • One of the most beautiful levada waterfalls in Madeira; The way to the waterfall is not particularly strenuous, but surefootedness and a head for heights should be provided.

  • A refreshing waterfall and a hood (or not), definitely a delightful experience!😁

  • We walk on the levada wall, partly on concrete slabs laid over the levada, through the rock face under the waterfall. A shower is not uncommon at this point.A 200m long tunnel connects directly to this high point. A flashlight is required, although the tunnel is dead straight and the exit is always visible.
