The north coast of the island of Madeira is rich in landscapes where the greatness of the mountains, covered in a dense mantle of green forest, contrasts with the vivid blue of the ocean. This is the case of the scenery that opens up before our eyes at the Quinta do Furão viewpoint.
This viewpoint is situated on the cliff top of Achada do Gramacho. This privileged location guarantees an unequalled panoramic view over the jagged profile of the northeast coast, whose coastline is marked here by the imposing rocky cliffs.
Within the framework of the Quinta do Furão viewpoint, the Ilhéu da Viúva stands out. With a maximum altitude of 94 metres, it is home to a valuable botanical heritage, which includes several species of plants that are exclusive to the archipelago of Madeira. It is part of the European Ecological Network of Special Areas of Conservation, Natura 2000 Network, and is part of the Rocha do Navio Natural Reserve.
The Quinta do Furão viewpoint is within the grounds of the Quinta do Furão Hotel, whose facilities, integrated in the cliff top, offer the ideal atmosphere for the contemplation of this landscape. The lively gardens of the hotel unit, as well as its traditional vineyards, coexist in harmony with the untouched Nature of the setting.
