Have been here twice. First time we were staying Santo da Serra and came down by taxi. Second time a friend drove me here for a Verada walk in the Laurisilva forest. There is no doubting that this is one of the most spectacular views...More

One of the best views of the north east towns and the coast - Port da Cruz and Faial feature prominently. As taxi drivers seem intent on touting for business, keeping calm and composed for photographs and the experience is not always easy. Still worth...More

Lovely way to see the views down to the small north coast villages without having a long walk from your transport.

You could get to Miradouro do Portela if you go to Levada do Furado (Ribeiro Frio-Portela levada). We finished our levada path at Portela and were amazed by beautiful views from Portela.

I reached this part after a 5-hour walk from Ribeiro Frio and was speechless at the view. It was simply amazing to look down all the way to the sea. The viewpoint area was spacious and only busy for a while when tourists were dropping...More

We did the walk from Robeiro Frio to Portela on a misty atmospheric day. It is a lovely walk through forest, ferns and tunnels. The view at the end is stunning. The bus stop back to Funchal is down the hill .

This was a welcome refuge for a drink following the 11km walk from Ribeiro Frio on a warm (yes, there have been some of them) sunny day in May. The beer was cool, the company was relaxing, so what more can you ask?
