We travelled as part of a group on a tour from a cruise ship. The ride from Funchal was quite interesting crossing the Island. The caves are in fact lava tunnels created by volcanic gases as the lava cooled and hardened.

Neither the tallest, deepest or most water filled caves in the world. But the half hour tour takes you through caves made from volcanic lava, complete with good lighting and music. The museum is worth a visit afterwards. All in all we spend 50 minutes...More

We visited for the first time last year. The whole tour takes about an hour as at the end you are taken down to a small theatre for about 15minutes with a screened summary of how it all came about. We enjoyed it. Quite a bit of rugged walking with dim lighting so take care and wear suitable footwear.
