The Madeira West Tour is the most popular tour we have on the island, offered daily as a minibus tour.
This full day tour offers one, the best views of Madeira island. With all stops being from 20 – 30 minutes long, and lunch for about 90 minutes, you end up spending more time out if the vehicle rather than in it. Starting off from Funchal, we head off for the famous fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. We then visit Cabo Girão, which is the highest sea cliff in Europe (580m). Our next stop is the village of Ribeira Brava where we stop to visit its church and famous chandelliers. We then visit, what has to be the most beautiful village on the island, Ponta do Sol, which means point of the sun. Making our way up through the Laurissilva forest, we reach the plateau of Paul da Serra. Here we do an optional, very easy, Levada walk. Our next stop is the village of Porto Moniz, which is famous for its volcanic rock pools. We will either stop for lunch here or the next vilage of Seixal where on can see the famous waterfalls known as “The Brides Vale”. Driving on a really scenic coastal route, we then visit another fishing village of São Vicente. Our last visit will be the breathtaking views we get from the mountain tops of Encumeada, before making our way back to Funchal.
