Peter:This is the eastern tip of the island. Beautiful views and stunning cliffs from beginning to end (PR8). Prepare for some wind though :-)

PR1 Vereda do Areeiro
Peter:Probably the most popular hike, and for good reason. It offers magnificent views over the island while hiking from 1 peak to another.

Levada do Caldeirão Verde
Peter:Levadas are human made irrigation channels that are now often used for hiking. I especially liked this one (PR9). If you want to avoid the crowd, make sure to extend the hike with the levada Caldeirão do Inferno.
