Risco waterfall the most stunning and high waterfall in Madeira. This short walk to the Risco waterfall is more of a leisurely stroll. Levada do Risco is 1.8 km one way which can be completed within less than two hours(return)on a very relaxing tempo.


6.Levada das 25 Fonte

The Levada das 25 Fontes is  the most popular hike on the island of Madeira.

It is a beautifull trail but it can be way too crowded so come in time (before 9am)

7. Piscinas Naturais do Seixal

If you’re looking for something relatively unspoiled by tourism and different to what everyone else does visit this natural swimming pool. It is located near black sand Laje beach, in Madeira’s northern coast. The most quite place to visit. Beautiful landscape and clear ocean water. However the road to Seixal it very steep. So be aware because it takes some driving skills to get here.
