Full description
Your journey will lead from the carpark above the Baia de Abra and then lead to the most eastern point of Madeira. Along the way, admire the rock formations that shine in warm ochre tones. This beautiful effect is caused by the calcareous composition.

Enjoy magnificent views of the bizarrely shaped coastline and the neighboring islands of Porto Santo and Desertas. Discover the island’s rich plant life including the ice plant, everlasting, and cardoon. Before ascending to the Morro do Furado (160m), stop for a snack at the Casa do Sardinha. Stare into the horizon on top of "Morro do Furado" and take in the spectacular panorama. If the weather is warm, take a refreshing dip in the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean before walking back to the car park.
