Spectacular views. Good exercise. Take a car, good shoes and snacks. The sign announcing height etc has been positioned in the wrong place with military communication equipment in the background. Take a camera and sketch pad and enjoy.

Ideal stop during guided East Tour visit. Wonderful views at the volcano tops sticking above the clouds and great alternative view to Nuns Valley. Certainly worth visiting.

We stopped at the peak during a Jeep tour. The peak was very windy but the sun was out so it was warm enough but take a jumper!

The views were amazing and the experience was worth the travel up.

Make the trip in a hire car and take a walk to the next highest peaks!

Wonderful place to visit, but get there early before crowds and the clouds! Nice restaurant and souvenir shop.

The main advantage and currently also disadvantage of this place is that you can reach it by car. We started our trip at Monte in Funchal and went up to Pico do Areiro which was nice trip but you still climb up to the hill. But we were little bit disapointed when we saw number of people going there by car.
We stayed over night at the top of the mountain and we continued to Pico Ruivo next day.
