Hiking in Madeira
It is always best not to walk alone and to take your mobile phone. Plan your route in advance and check Levada and other routes are open if the weather is wet. Traffic on some of the roads can be faster than you might expect so take care and be alert for lorries and buses which take up more than half the road!
Renting a car is probably the best option to explore all of the Island.
See our website for links to tours etc MadeiraComfort.pt.
What's in Boaventura?
The house is located in a quiet semi-rural location which can serve as a base to explore the North Coast from Santana to Porto Moniz. The centre of Boaventura to the West towards Sao Vicente has a mini market and pharmacy. To the East is Arco de Sao Jorge with its famous Rose Gardens.
The nearest large supermarket, Continente Modelo, is in Santana, visible from the road to Machico and about 20 minute drive.
There is a mini mercado on ER101, some bars and coffee shops within walking distance including the Portadas restaurant with a traditional but limited menu. There is a daily visit from the fishmonger's van and from the fruit/vegetable lorry.
If you get bored of the local scenery there are regular but infrequent bus services. The Ponta Delgada pool complex is 10 minutes drive or an hour's walk. Taxis are best for Levada walks. We recommend the Windy Maps App but there is also the Walkme app.
There are several places to eat in and around Boaventura. Our favourites include Restaurante São Cristóvão 10 minutes drive to the West and Restaurante Calamar along ER101 towards Sao Vicente.
