Serra de Água Things to Do

    Severely damaged by the flooding Serra d'Água impresses in a close look, but it keeps all its beauty when seen as part of the landscape.

    Amidst the hard work, life goes on, and the waterfalls and flowers gloom, indifferent to the tragedy.

    The landscape around Serra d'Água is wild and very beautiful. Encumeada is a high point, with great views all around - when weather allows it.

    Waterfalls, nice trails, flowers everywhere, advice you to stop frequently, and your brakes will thank you for not being burnt in the descent.

    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.

    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 de Água Warnings and Dangers

    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.
