Our last full day. And we hadn't seen a levada yet. Shame on us, seven days on this beautiful island and no hike along a water irrigation chanel. So, today it must be. Trying to drive to Loreto with a short-cut. Wrong, no short-cut. So, we were back in Calheta again. Ah hell, making the situation usefull, we did some groceries in the biggest supermarket of south western Madeira. Should we go via Calheta to Loreto? We did not take the chance and went back to Arco. It did not matter at all, it was just some 15 minutes drive. Finding a parking place was a little bit more difficult. We did what the most Madeiraens do, wild parking. No problem.
The first part of the hike brought us to Calheta Central.
