Enjoy a Madeira West Island Tour

The west is full of cliffs, valleys, forests, mountains, waterfalls, and cows! The morning is usually spent exploring the southwestern coastline around the areas of Ribeira Brava and Ponta do Sol.

After coffee, we start climbing up the old roads and dirt paths to one of the west tour’s main attraction, the plateau, Paul Da Serra. If the weather is good, we spend a fair amount of time up here taking in the unbelievable views from above the volcanic valleys, formed during the third phase of eruptions that created Madeira Island.

For lunch, we stop at the Aqua Natura Hotel, which is simply the best place in Porto Moniz for lunch (optional extra — not included in price but highly recommended).

After lunch, we make our way back to Funchal via the beautiful northwestern coastal roads, stopping at various attractions along the way, including waterfalls, local bars, volcanic sand beaches and lagoons where we can swim (weather permitting)

This trip is highly improvised because of the dramatic nature of the terrain and climate, making it a real adventure every time! It’s great for families, nature lovers and those who like being away from the crowds.
