The Marocos walk starts in Maroços and ends in Ribeira Seca. This Levada, is also called “Levada das Mimosas” due to the many Mimosa trees bordering this irrigation channel. At each turn, you will enjoy superb views over Machico Valley, the sea and distant views of the Desertas Islands. Different vegetables and fruits which grow on the terraces, provide an amazing contrast to the natural vegetation you will see along the way. This is a easy walk for all ages.
