Love the Levadas, take some water if it's a hot day. Such beautiful walks, the scenery is truly magnificent. check in case there are any tunnels and take a torch if there is. Your phone torch may not be bright enough.

We walked from Estraita to Cabo Girao. Honestly, it was rather tedious, not the best, really just exercise. At Cabo Girao we could not find the bus stop, and finished up walking to Camara de lobos. trying.

We walked several levadas on our trip and this was our least favourite. We walked the (longish) length from Boa Morte to the coast at Cabo Girao. Generally it is in good repair and reasonably easy walking but sections do need care. So decent footware...More
