Encumeada Viewpoint

Situated on a high point of the island, the Encumeada Viewpoint allows you to observe the north and south coasts of Madeira. This panoramic view, with its unique amplitude, reveals to visitors a global perspective of this Atlantic island.

This observation site can be found on the crest of the mountain range that runs through the interior of Madeira. It is situated at an altitude of 1007 metres, which allows visitors to enjoy an open view over the surrounding landscape.

Standing out in the landscape framing the Encumeada Viewpoint are the deep valleys of Ribeira Brava, on the south coast of the island, and São Vicente, on the north coast. The green colours of the forest covering the mountains reign supreme whichever side you may look to. The mountain peaks are often just above the clouds - a truly memorable visual spectacle that is worth photographing.

Finally, you can take advantage of the visit to the Encumeada Viewpoint to walk along some of the pedestrian trails in this region or to get to know Serra d'Água, a parish with a vast natural heritage, which is surrounded by the various mountain peaks in the area and a dense forest.

The Encumeada Viewpoint, situated at an altitude of 1007 metres, provides a panoramic view of the island with an open view over the north and south coasts.
