Sunset from the sea
Only nature, an endless ocean, a constant line that balances days and nights and with the 3 Desert Islands there in the background, a little to the left.

This is a perfect gift for relaxation, and you deserve it.

Hiking along the Levadas
For an active holiday in Madeira, to reconnect with yourself and nature, you will want to do one or more hikes along the levadas. Created by the inhabitants of the island, these Levadas allow water to circulate from the rainier north of the island to the sunnier south to grow delicious fruits and vegetables.
These paths, through natural reserves, forest, and run alongside waterfalls, lakes, rivers, are the best way to discover a Madeira where time slows down.
One Levada you must definitely do is this one.
You’ll rappel down wonderful waterfalls where mountain spring waters constantly flow, taking refreshing dips along the way.
