If you love walking and have never visited Madeira then one of your best holidays still lies ahead of you. It is the perfect walkers island, with an extensive network of well maintained footpaths through very varied terrain. The famous levada footpaths run beside water channels which cut through the mountains, linking the relatively wet north half of the island with the relatively dry south. Your holiday starts in the little visited village of Porto Moniz, in the far northwest, with its sheltered harbour where a mass of pointed reefs provide natural bathing pools. Remoteness is the only reason the area sees so few visitors. Amongst our walks is the peaceful Levada do Moinho with several watermills along its course and descents along cobbled tracks through pretty villages. Our second centre of Ponta do Sol is on the south coast. From here we walk€ross high moorland along the Levada do Paul, visit the worlds second highest sea-cliffs at Cabo Giro and head into the central mountains on our walk between Boca da Corrida and Encumeada. If you have a good head for heights, you’ll love Madeira!
