Second time we've walked here - last time in November 2016 - so muddy but still great views though we didn't climb the far hill at the end. This time it was dry and clear- we got to the car park at around 10.30 -...More

The one of the most visiting route on Madeira is a road to the Eastern point of the island - Cape Ponta de Sao Lourenco. And there is a good reason for that - amazing views. There are no trees, so do not forget to...More

It is so amazing place! Perfect for all day trip. The further you go, more beautiful the views are. Just take a water and sandwiches and go there! It is available for average person.

Ya know how sometimes you are thinking, this is was probably not the best idea? Thought briefly crossed my mind today while hiking the eastern point of Madeira. This windswept ridge is rather desolate and strung out. The wind at times literally knocked me down....More

In the center of Funchal (Avenida do Mar close to Praca da Autonomia) take the bus SAM No 113. Then travel to the last bus stop in Baia D'Abra (ca. 1h:20min).
