On this tour you will have the opportunity to see the bananas plantation, the vineyards for the Madeira Wine, sugar cane and a lot of natural and different sea views including the natural lava swimming pools at Porto Moniz, as well as, mountains views including the plateau “Paúl da Serra” on top of the west side.


Touring on the old roads with several stops for photos, talking and enjoying the views of Câmara de Lobos (optional visit to Cabo Girão), Ribeira Brava will leave you with an idea of how life is on the Island and how it was back on the old days. On the way up to Encumeada, the breathtaking views and the deep valley whose mountains take you up on the clouds, and then down on the winding roads through the Laurissilva forest for Lunch (optional) at São Vicente.

Seixal and Porto Moniz will be our next stops, where you will be seeing, first a natural black sand beach and then the famous lava swimming pools.

High up again we go to Paúl da Serra. This plateau has a landscape that differs from that same morning mountains and peaks views. On this area you can appreciate the southern and northern part of the island just by looking left or right.

Down again from the top, but this time into the southwest of Madeira: Prazeres, Fajã da Ovelha, Paúl do Mar, Jardim do Mar, Calheta and Ponta do Sol; where the Sugar cane and Banana terraces that start at the sea level and climb up the hills will be a common view…

Around the Island – West Sidecar Tour

Ride of our lives!

Ride of our lives! The Madeira Side Car Tour is the only way to see the island, there is so much to see and take in which you can’t do in a car or on a coach. We had a personalised 4-hour tour from our hotel in Funchal to São Vicente, Seixal and Porto Moniz. We were greeted outside our hotel by Filipe who talked us through the route to make sure we were happy and checked our helmets before we set off. A small group of hotel residents had gathered and waved us off in style. Filipe was extremely professional and friendly and gave us the perfect balance of talking to us about the points of interest and allowing us to take in the sights. The views of the mountains with the morning sun beaming through the peaks was breath taking. Filipe stopped at several points for photos, to switch places (pillion & sidecar) and to talk through the scenic views, describing what we could see with such passion for his island. There were so many photo opportunities along the way, as well as people waving as we passed. It really was the highlight of our holiday and one that we will remember forever. Go on, book it! It is a must do trip in Madeira and one that you will not regret.
