Rather go to the Levada of 25 waterfalls and not to this one. If you want to see just one go to this one.

Six and a half kilometres to the waterfall and a packed lunch - then back again. Followed the levada through the forest at great height. Greta talking to new friends, but not much of a view

This was our first and only levada walk while on our holiday (unfortunately the bad weather made all mountain walks foggy and inaccessible). It was inspiring to see the lush nature, breathe the freshest air and enjoy amazing scenery. The tunnels were fun as well....More

This is a nice walk. A bit difficult to find the starting point, when you are on your own. Crowded, even in August after the holiday season. Some parts are quite steep, some parts are quite small. Has nice views and small tunnels for which...More

Such lush vegetation clinging to the walls of the mountains! An exciting walk along some very narrow paths along the levadas. Some great tunnels that a flashlight is needed for (mind your head- mine took a beating despite the flashlight!) Despite some cloud cover, I...More

Very easy walk. Bring good shoes. And water. And a TORCH. You need to walk thru tunnels, with no lights, about 50meters. And there is a chance of slipping. Only toilet facilities is at the start of the walk. There is a small car park,...More

Worth getting there early before it gets too busy. There is a slight climb at the end to get to the waterfall. Stunning. Worth going onto the Caldeira Inferno but be aware this has one hard climb in the middle and one of our group...More

Really easy signposted route but was quite muddy underfoot. The low score is due to the constant cloud covering hence no view really and there was no cafe in sight. There were plenty of walkers along the 18km round trip we did and not 1...More

This is a main attraction for any hiker going to Madeira. It would be a 5-star place for me but there are many parts where trees have fallen over and made the path dangerous or impassable. There are huge crowds in both directions and people...More

Just take a taxi to the start of the walk (and ask the driver to come and fetch you 5 hours later). Take a picnic. There is no way you can get lost on the path. You can organise it by yourselves. We didn't meet or get in... More

Bus runs to Santana and then you would need taxi as you wouldn't want to waste time walking on the road when the levada is long in itself. You would also need taxi back to Santana and bus. A hired car is best option.
