This is usually a stop on the tour of the west of the island and, cloud permitting, affords great views of the coast. I also understand that it is on a levada walk as well. If the cows are still in the vicinity be aware...More

Don't miss out on climbing the Pico Ruivo (make sure you either have transport arranged or do a there-and-back-again walk), it's a fantastic viewpoint all over the island. You're above the clouds, it's sunny and the views are breathtaking. Hiking gear and UV protection is...More

We walked a short stretch of this as part of a tour of the west. Pleasant enough, with some good views, but there are more exciting levada walks!

We stopped at the top of the mountain on our way to Rabacal. The highway up the mountain is very steep and windy. We didn’t do the hike but saw the windmills and solar panels. There are no trees only scrub bush and it was...More

It's all about the getting to and going from. The scenery changes initially to what resembles the new forest. Odd I know. Gorse heathland with cows and cattle grids but with valleys with clouds in them. You gradually rise and the scenery changes to deep...More

Be there close to the sunset, a couple of hours so you can explore several sites around you. Between 17:30 GMT to 18:00 GMT be there. If you are lucky you will feed yourself like inside the cockpit on a smooth flight. Just a few...More

The views here are truly amazing. Absolutely worth a visit to the top. If it's clear you can see for miles and it's most definitely worth it. We were lucky to go up when it was clear.

There are absolutely brilliant views from up here, you can virtually see for miles on a clear day. There is a wee concrete tower which my husband climbed up, as I was too short to do so and he got some good photos. The scenery...More
