RoutePortela - Maiata - Larano - Boca do Risco - Levada do Caniçal - Maroços - Portela
NotesRating 8/10, Landscapes #15,14,11. A long circuit, but a highly rewarding day walk giving a taste in one day of vitually everything Madeira has to offer while walking. The coastal balcony path is particularly pretty, as is the levada section above the terracotta rooves Maroços
