For the more adventurous walkers, you can join the Levada da Referta walk, the Levada do Castelejo trail, and thus add to the agricultural landscape, the surrounding scenery of the Laurissilva Forest.

The parish of Porto da Cruz is one of the places of excellence for the practice of Trail, with Levada da Referta being one of the many training routes in the municipality of Machico, attracting numerous native practitioners and visitors throughout the year.

A moderately difficult course that is relatively short in length, without major fluctuations in altitude, and can be carried out without great demands or surprises.

The agricultural aspect of the route allows you to understand the type of local crops, admittedly horticultural and with the objective of subsistence. Many of the uncultivated lands concern land whose owners are emigrated or simply do not make the primary sector their main activity.
