The Portuguese island Madeira is located in the Atlantic Ocean, just north-west of the Canary islands.
The famous “Levada” were developed to distribute water from the wet regions at the north of the island to the drier sunny regions of the south. By their very nature, the mini-canals are the ideal country walking paths and offer extroadinary views. One of them is the terraced hillside of the Ribeira da Janela valley.
The Levada leads to a long tunnel with a waterfall behind:
Along the Levada da Bica da Cana it is often very cloudy but therefore you can observe cows;)
With a walk at São Lourenço you can explore the very eastern part of the island with great Atlantic panoramas, colourful cliffs and bracing sea.
But my favourite view is from the Ponta do Espigão Amarelo along the sea cliff trail.
From the Pico do Arieiro, at 1,818 m (third highest peak of Madeira) you can see the north of the island with clouds around the Penha de Águia (Eagle Rock),
At Jardim do Mar you can also enjoy fantastic views:
Driving along the coast you will find more awesome sceneries.
