Do you want jaw-dropping scenery and don't mind walking a bit? This is definitely the spot. It's a haul with some challenging hills but well worth the trek. Just remember, there is a shuttle to take you back up to the parking area.

We were not told how very narrow and high these paths were! We were told it was an easy 3 or 4 km walk. Never having been to Madeira before or heard of Levada walks, we assumed they were a bit like a country hike with some easy slopes. Wrong. Start off with an 800m tunnel anyone over about 5feet 5 will need to duck...if you can see by the light of your phone torch, if you have one...and walk through deep puddles in the dark. Next throw in steep, uneven steps of up to around 200 at once, a narrow path (barely wide enough for one small person) with a sheer drop "fenced off" by a 2 wire fence. The end result is beautiful but having an absolute terror of heights and no way of not carrying on with the walk, I was in no fit state to appreciate it. And we had to retrace the narrow path back! So if you have claustrophobia, difficulty climbing and descending uneven steps or a fear of heights AVOID! This walk would not be deemed safe in the UK!

Trail PR 6.1 goes along Levada do Risco, at 1000m above sea level, taking you to an impressive waterfall, which falls vertically, creating a ridge in the rock.

A lovely easy walk that’s cool and quiet. Easy for kids of all ages. There are steps and a little cafe on the way. Beautiful birds and amazing scenery

Much more beautiful and bigger falls than 25 Fontes. Recommend going to see this one for sure! Also buy the van driving you up and down from parking, its good value because the walk from parking is not that beautiful.

This is a very, very easy levada you can almost do in flipflops. Practically a narrow walk, wide path, ending with a wonderful view at the waterfall. Coupled together with 25 fontes it is a very pleasant trip.

Nice levada walk, in the shadows for most of the part. At the end there a beautiful start of levada with a lagoon and a waterfall. You can turn left halfway to the end, there is another waterfall at the bottom.
