One of the must-do-walks of Madeira. It's a bout 8 km with 450 m ascent. Since it’s a very nice trail and quite easy, it’s very popular and therefore recommended to start as early as possible if you want to avoid the crowds. I would suggest before 08.00 in the morning. There’s a big parking at the start that quickly fills up during the day.
Great views of the rocky coasts of the eastern-most peninsula on Madeira. There are some small rocky beaches that we did not visit, but take swimming clothes if you want to make this an all-day event.
Alternatively, the sandy beach of Machico is around the corner as well, and you easily combine this walk with an afternoon on the beach.
