Lombada da Ponta do Sol

The Lombada da Ponta do Sol trail is ideal for those who wish to explore Madeira's traditional 'levadas' while adventuring in this sport.
Located on the southwest coast of Madeira, this trail is marked by its mountain and ocean landscapes.


The trail is 7.8 km long. As it is relatively short, its degree of difficulty is considered moderate.
However, it has a positive level difference of 522 metres in altitude, while the sum of the descents in altitude is about 512 metres.


Since it has a circular outline, the Lombada da Ponta do Sol trail starts and ends in the same place: Sítio da Lombada.
Located north of the town of Ponta do Sol, this is the starting point of this adventure through the region's mountains.


Along the Lombada da Ponta do Sol trail, runners will find two 'levadas': Levada do Moinho, with a more irregular outline, more demanding from a technical point of view, and Levada Nova, whose altitude requires some prudence.
The entire running experience is accompanied by stunning views over the surrounding mountain scenery.
