Leaving the Lido where our tour begins, the first stop is Terreiro da Luta.
Our drive continues towards the mountain Pico do Arieiro. At an altitude of 1818 metres it is the third highest peak on the island and affords breathtaking views.

After visiting the highest (driveable) peak in Madeira, we head down to the coast through original forest to the last home of Madeira's emblematic straw-roofed houses. Passing pretty villages and stunning seascapes, we arrive at the very eastern point for some superb views of the bold north and sunny south coasts in one panoramic vista.......

On the northern slopes of the island the tour reaches a popular starting point for 'levada' walks, Ribeiro Frio. With its interesting trout pools, this area still has much of its original vegetation. The island was once completely covered by 'Laurissilva' forest, a relic from prehistoric times.
Time for lunch in Santana that is characterised by its small thatched triangular houses.

Then we will go towards Ponta de São Lourenço, situated in the eastern part of the island, this is the place where a fantastic combination of rocks, sea and nature combine.
The last town to be visited is Machico, a point view where you can look over the bay and the golden sandy beach.

Recently visited Madeira for a holiday and decided to take a tour of the east coast with Lido Tours. The driver was a very friendly chap who kept us well informed throughout the tour and was very entertaining. Without a doubt, one of the highlights of our holiday!
