    After a ride through some heavy fog we couldn't believe that it was all blue up there. Amazing views 360 all around.

    Beautiful scenery and experience walking alongside the water. Strongly recommend going first thing in the morning to avoid tour groups as the paths are narrow and getting past a big group can take a long time - we only got caught in one. The minibus wasn't running when we were there - we would have caught it back as the walk back to the car park is pretty monotonous, and gets harder in the heat. Overall really worth an early morning visit - the car park as well has a lot of spaces in the mornings but you'll have to slot onto the road later in the day. The cafe was a nice break and does tasty coffee

    Smooth and nice ride with great views. You really have to take this trip if you're in Funchal or nearby.

    Beautiful mountains, not to see anywhere else in Europe. The path isn't easy but not extremely difficult either. You gotta go up and down and up again couple times. There are couple of tunnels too!

    We did the tour of the Fajã with Fatima, our knowledgable guide. This was an amazing location made even better through the well paced and well-organised tour of the property. Fatima spoke great English, was friendly and engaging, especially with our 4-year-old boy, whom she involved in the tour and kept interested for the entire 2 hours. At the end of the tour, there fas fruit tasting at the on-site restaurant.

    The teleférico ride down was breathtaking. The lushness and diversity of the farm was amazing. The rental properties immaculately preserved. The fare at the restaurant top class (all ingredients used grown at the property, where possible, and all organic).

    Top tip: try the Surinamese cherry ice-cream. The perfect finish to this great tour.

    Thank you Fatima! You are an asset to the Fajã!

    Upon seeing this beach with multiple pools, I thought of a water park, man-made and an admission charge. Of course, none of us were interested in swimming, or even getting wet. This swimming pool area is fun for the kids, and anyone looking for a destination for safe, monitored swimming.
    One half of the area is through a ticket booth area. Entry is 3E.
    We didn't realize that our lunch venue would be just above.

    We were staying in Câmara de Lobos and decided to walk up...

    Please don't attempt this unless you are pretty fit - it's very steep towards the top and we got a taxi back!

    It was a beautiful walk. The difficulty level is low, the path is very well protected, not recommended for children. We passed through 3 caves, but they are easy to go through, it is advisable to take a flashlight or use the light of the cell phone. As the path is wet, it is necessary to pay attention to the shoes not to slip.

    Very easy walk (around 3km both ways) with beautiful views of the valley in the end. Suitable for every age group.

    A beach with the most exciting view in the whole island. It is not sheltered so not the safest but definitely a fun!

    The trip up there on the bus is good and the gardens were good for Madeira. There are toilets on site too. Very quiet and tranquil. Don't waste your time in the cafe though - extremely expensive and shocking coffee! Food looked very dry and overpriced too.

    We visited here in March 2022, and arrived at the carpark before 7am hoping to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy on that day. We started to do the PR8 Verada da Ponta de São Lourenço hike to the lookout at Miradouro Ponta do Furado. It was a leisure 2.5 hours walk from the carpark (including many stop for photos an flying drone) to reach the lookout point. Would definitely recommend people to do this hike while in Madeira. But try to come early as the place gets crowded on our way back to the carpark at around 130pm.
