I doubt very much that the tunnel at Doca dos Cavacas will be open by mid April .You can make a detour near that point by walking up to the top road near the Forum Shopping Mall , continue towards the Madeira Regency Palace Hotel and walk back down to the coastal path .

I do the walk from Praia Formosa to C do L every day and have only had to turn back once. It is rarely closed but the tunnel is usually closed during Winter because of high seas. As Mike says, there is a road which takes you down to the walk. You can still walk from Lido to Doca tos Cavacas and up on to the road to continue the walk.

The walk to Balcoes can be done, but the one to Portela probably NOT for all year, according to the Current Update at sunflowerbooks.co.uk/product/walking-in-made… , walk 25

You can always ask www.madeira-levada-walks.com about it

It's bus 56 at 8.10 or 10.00 weekdays, 10.00 Saturdays, 10.30 Sundays

see www.horariosdofunchal.pt Interurban route to Santana . Bus station at Cable car Old Town

On weekdays you can come back from Ribeiro Frio at about 13.15 and just after 6 PM, on weekends only just after 6 PM
