More things to do around Garganta Funda waterfall
When you’ve seen the Miradouro Garganta Funda it’s time to explore some more places along Madeira’s west coast. It depends what you’re in for, because you can either choose for a more active or more relaxing thing to do. Some of the suggestions are listed down below.
Go to Ponta do Pargo lighthouse
Very close to the viewpoint is the Ponta do Pargo farrol located. This lighthouse offers another stunning 180 degree view on the Atlantic Ocean and is of the best sunset spots on the island!
Visit Porto Moniz
In this little coastal town on Madeira’s north west coast you can swim in the famous Porto Moniz natural lava pools.
Eat at some of the great restaurants in this area
We have tried quite a lot restaurants in Madeira, and two of our favorites are in this area! Definitely try the dishes at O Forno, they have some of the best meat and actually everything is super tasty! We also had dinner at Miradouro O Fio which has a restaurant on site with the incredible views. The scabbard fish is recommended!
Hike the Levada do Ponta do Pargo
When you’re in for a hike, you should check out Levada Ponta do Pargo. This levada walk leads you through the laurisilva forest of Madeira and along the coast back to your car.
Relax at Achadas da Cruz
Take the cable car down and explore this little piece of land with a stunning pebbled beach and back drop of enormous cliffs.
