    No visit to Madeira is complete, without a walk in the wild. The "levadas" are the best way to collect superb views and they are everywhere, though with different levels of beauty and risk. However, levadas are not the only way, and in Serra d'Água there are also some interesting trails.

    They are not famous as some other in Madeira. They are not big, and I don't even know if they are permanent, or just the consequence of recent raining, but I must confess that Encumeada had the greatest density of waterfalls for square kilometer in all the island, when I visited it.

    Great views!

    Serra d'Agua and Encumeada are the areas were the views of the peeks are more impressive. Frequent fog enhance the image of the steep mountains, while flowers and general green soften the landscape.

    Small waterfalls may be seen almost everywhere.

    The local drink may be found in many places, but Serra d'Água was THE place for our group to taste it.

    We failed, and did it elsewhere, but some of our friends respected the plan, and returned euphoric, with the drinks, and the discovery of signs of previous visits from our dancing team.

    Serra d'Água was the most destroyed area in Madeira, in last year's flooding.

    Hard work is being done, but removing the thousand of tones of rocks, and reconstructing the damaged structures takes time. This was the only area where we had some difficulties in circulation.
