Northwest Madeira

Jagged, imposing seacliffs and the wild, restless Atlantic ocean dominate the landscape of Northwest Madeira. 

From the terraced vineyards of the Sao Vicente river valley, via the photogenic Cascata Veu da Noiva waterfall, to the seawater swimming pools of Porto Moniz: Madeira’s remote north west has some of the islands most-remote and impressive natural landmarks. These monolithic rockfaces, precipices and promontories have been at the mercy of sea for five million years – the human population of the north for slightly less time, but they’re still a hardy bunch who’ll always offer visitors a warm welcome.

Inland, the high Paul de Serra plain is quite a contrast to the rest of Madeira, and when the cloud and mist drops you could be forgiven for mistaking the Serra for the highlands of Scotland. It’s the start-point for some of the more-popular walks on the island – the famous Levada das 25 Fontes walk begins here – and the Japanese Cedar forests across the western slopes of Pico da Padreira are home to some of the best mountain biking trails on Madeira.
