Overview

This walk is all about experiencing Madeira’s varied landscapes and levadas in one day. You’ll meander along valleys on the Levada do Moinho, catching sight of fruit and vegetable plantations, then join the Levada Nova to see waterfalls in amongst rock formations. You’ll have earnt your ice-cool drink by the end.

We’ll kick off the adventure from one of the oldest quintas on the island, Quinta ‘Solar dos Esmeraldos’, where the Levada do Moinho takes us into the Ribeira da Ponta do Sol valley. Pass by terraced fields, blooming with blackberries and more, then before you reach Levada Nova, there’s some photo-worthy views over the valley and sea below.

Now you’ll amble along the rocky levada, hopping across a river bed to where stunning waterfalls thunder over it. Catch the spray off them to cool off, and continue along the path to more waterfalls cutting through the rocks.
