Madeira Island Things to Do: 361 reviews and 672 photos

by sachara

The south-western part of the island is less frequently visited than other parts. We stayed for two nights in the hotel Jardim do Atlantico at the southern end of Prazeres. The hotel was at Lomba da Rocha, at the top of the cliffs with fantastic views at the ocean. From our room we saw beautiful sunsets.

In the area of Raposeira - Prazeres - Calheta you can make rather easy walks on the plain just above the coast, along the levada, with views to the ocean at the south and the mountain slopes of the Paul da Serra at the north. The village Prazeres is a good starting point for visits to the Paul da Serra and the western part of the Parque Natural de Madeira, like Rabacal.

Directions: Southwestern coast
