Levada do Moinho
Nature Walk

€47 euros per person
Wednesdays and Sundays

This is our therapeutic walk.​ It´s very quiet and away from all the crowds....​

This levada was constructed by the people from the villages of Porto Moniz and Ponta do Pargo to aid the "moinhos" or water mills of which can still be distinguished along the walk.

There are many water springs and "water features" flowing out of the interesting rock formations as well as dense vegetation often very green. 

Some may call it mystic, with many ferns and laurel trees.

Being a reasonably flat walk, this is a great levada for those who want to experience the forest, the fauna and flora and the water canals without the stress of the large crowds at the more popular levadas and without too much difficulty.

The walk is roughly 10km in length, 3 and a half hours to complete and is considered a moderate walk


"This was our third trip with Hit the Road. It is a beautiful walk and the rain of the previous day made some crossings a bit challenging. Good walking shoes a definite must. The old mill site made and excellent picnic spot. Just a pity about the graffiti. Lisa was our guide and her passion and love for nature and the island was inspirational. She was also very patient and helpful with our 76 year old Mum and helped photograph each and every (nearly) mushroom we came across."
