We stopped on our way between Machico and Porto da Cruz, definitely worth the visit for the stunning views! We also had fab lunch there. Easy car park and not much walking involved. The clouds and fog just fly by 100times a minute, one can...More

You could get to Miradouro do Portela if you go to Levada do Furado (Ribeiro Frio-Portela levada). We finished our levada path at Portela and were amazed by beautiful views from Portela.

This was a welcome refuge for a drink following the 11km walk from Ribeiro Frio on a warm (yes, there have been some of them) sunny day in May. The beer was cool, the company was relaxing, so what more can you ask?

We stopped before going on a nice walk along the levadas. Good coffee but you could also have lunch there.

We were traveling through the north east of Madeira for the first time and came upon this Miradouro by accident. It was a lucky accident since this is spot provides an excellent view to the coastline
