The Cascata dos Anjos ("Waterfall of Angels") falls down a sheer rock face onto the E.R.101 road and in to the sea. It is one of the most picturesque and photographed falls on Madeira.

The beautiful waterfall can be reached easily in a hire car from Funchal. A natural car wash, the Cascata dos Anjos waterfall is about 30 minutes drive west of Madeira's capital.

The flow of water comes from a levada - one of the many irrigation channels that funnel and transport water on the island for agriculture.
