A beautiful walk on good paths along the Levada do Moinho. Some effort required on the ascent to the Levada, which is an uphill stretch of about 800m.  Once on the Levada it is a pleasant walk with some ups and downs and you will encounter small waterfalls and creeks along the way.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Ideal für den Start vom Hotel in Ponta do Sol, allerdings knackiger Anstieg bis zum „Startpunkt“ der anderen Levada-Wanderungen. Der Levada do Moinho war schön, aber der Levada Novo auf dem Rückweg war beeindruckender, mit Tunnel und Wasserfall tolle Highlights. Levada do Moinho hatte auf halber Strecke eine kritische Stelle nach frischem Hangrutsch (siehe Foto). Konnte aber auch mit Höhenangst überwunden werden. Tolle Wanderung, zu empfehlen.
