Madeira: West Island tour
- Get a glimpse of how life is on the Island at Ribeira Brava
- Compare the southern and northern part of the island on the plateau of Paul da Serra
- See volcanic rock pools when you descend to Porto Moniz
Embark on this amazing journey to discover the western part of Madeira with a friendly and professional tour guide. You will be able to discover Cape Girão and Porto Moniz, where you can contemplate the volcanic rock pools.
Going west, your route will start from fishing villages in the south, past the grandiose Cape Girão with its 589 meter vertical drop to the sea. Ribeira Brava will give you a glimpse of how life is on the Island.
With a climb up the Encumeada, you will be blessed with breathtaking views. A deep valley whose mountains only end where the clouds frolick, you will go up to Paul da Serra. This plateau, with its straight road, has a landscape that contrasts with the small winding roads of Madeira, and it is from this spot where you can compare the southern and northern part of the island just by turning your head.
Descend to Porto Moniz, where one can see volcanic rock pools. After lunch, take in the landscape of the northern coast, all the while accompanied by the sea. Return to the south via the picturesque village of São Vicente.
