We rented the house there for four days, so It was magic to stay there during full moon, peaceful place. In the morning the waterfalls wake you up ( also you can here turists walking around 10 o'clock) but they don't see or hear you when you are at house) It's unforgettable to walk at night at park, and to...

A lot to do and see here. There are walks above the water and also down by the side. You can do a round trip that does not take long either going above and down the steps and back on the bed of the stream or the other way. Several pools,waterfalls and streams to see as well as a high... More

Waterfalls, walking trails, opportunities for canyoning, hiking, historic mills, exotic flora - this area has plenty to offer. There is also a snack bar, souvenir shop, good washrooms. Plenty of places to picnic or just sit and enjoy the views. Onsite parking and no admission fee.

Lovely and not difficult walk around the paths and mills, which are being restored. There is a tourist shop near the entrance and toilets/drinks. If you like plants, you will enjoy it. Make sure you explore all paths as you could be missing out. We went at the start of August and there was low flow on the waterfalls etc,... More

We stopped off at this attraction when we drove around the island. It was fairly easy to find and there was sufficient parking. It is only a short walk from the car park to the waterfall, which is an amazing scene. There is a walkway up to the waterfall and some paths to the side if you want a closer... More

Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes is something worth while visiting . The path below leads to a waterfall, a view below to the river and to a place where you can... More
