Tour Itinerary

São Vicente

Nestled between basaltic lava on the North Coast, Sao Vicente boasts narrow streets, ancient homes, and a 17th-century church. Nearby, a coastal park showcases Madeira’s endemic flora. Explore volcanic caves, though currently closed.

Ponta Delgada

Head through the pretty São Vicente village to reach the lovely Ponta Delgada. Surrounded by green mountains, this calm fishing village has the Bom Jesus church by the sea and a modern lido complex. Passing through “Boaventura,” enjoy the beautiful views.

Cabanas Viewpoint

From Boaventura, the old road to Arco de Sao Jorge is one of the most dramatic in Madeira. Passing through an old tunnel we reach Arco de São Jorge, a lush farmland with vineyards. After several hairpin bends we reach, Cabanas Viewpoint, also known as Miradouro da Beira da Quinta. The houses of Arco de São Jorge and the Rose garden lay small and far below. You can admire the beautiful north-western coast line as far as Porto Moniz.

Porto da Cruz

Driving down to the North Coast, to a rural village of Porto da Cruz. Located at the foot of a Rock called Penha d´Aguia and on the other side, steep terraced slopes. The only running sugar mill in the north coast is located in this village. Its brick chimney stands up high in the village. It has a beautiful sea promenade. This small village of Porto da Cruz has a maze of alleys and the former warehouses are being converted into cafes.

We will visit Engenhos do Norte, a Sugar Cane Mill where you will be OFFERED a shot of local RUM, FIREWATER and BROAS DE MEL

Pico do Facho Viewpoint

Machico Bay, where Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira first landed during Madeira’s discovery, features a uniquely shaped valley resembling a balcony overlooking the sea and mountains. Historically vital, it thrived with sugar cane crops and mills, vital for Madeira’s economy until the 17th century. Pico do Facho, a 320-meter-high peak on the eastern side, derives its name from the beacon that once warned of approaching pirates.

Santa Cruz

Your next and final stop is the town next to the Airport, Santa Cruz. It is a rewarding place for a short stay. The pebbled beach is lined with large palm trees and the colourful fishing boats lay between them. The market hall is famous for its fresh fish, unimaginable fruit and vegetables. There is a large tiled frieze at the entrance depicting the fishermen. The white attractive church is from the sixteenth century and is well preserved.

This was a great tour with Manuel as our driver and guide. Manuel was lovely and very knowledgeable about the places we visited and about the island of Madeira. We were the only ones on this tour so we were very grateful to Madeira Island Tours for not cancelling due to the very small number of people who had booked. We had a fantastic time and Manuel really looked after us...
Great way to see the island

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Northeast Tour which seems to be very popular. Our coach was filled to capacity, despite the fact that it was an off-shoulder month. We got stuck in traffic for a bit but that is through no fault of anyone. I really enjoyed the whole day and can definitely say that the Sao Vicente Caves are worth seeing. But before you even get to the caves, sit back and enjoy the spectacular drive from the mountains into the valley. From one part of the island, the weather changed completely, just like that! Definitely a must do.
