Situated along the historic road linking São Vicente to Seixal, one finds one of Madeira Island’s north coast’s most celebrated and socially shared landmarks: the Véu da Noiva Waterfall. This enchanting waterfall, easily visible from the Véu da Noiva viewpoint, captivates visitors with its serene and unique beauty.

At this viewpoint, the landscape unfolds in all its glory. The waterfall, cascading down the slope towards the sea, earned its name – meaning ‘Bride’s Veil’ in Portuguese – from its remarkable height and the sheer volume of water that flows from it, resembling the delicate veil of a bridal gown against the lush green backdrop.

The Véu da Noiva is the dramatic result of the Ribeira de João Delgado’s suspended mouth, formed through a process of rapid coastal retreat and vertical erosion. Its splendor is beyond words and has become an increasingly popular attraction, drawing a growing number of visitors to this scenic spot.

Beyond the waterfall, the Véu da Noiva viewpoint also offers a splendid opportunity to gaze upon the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean and observe the typical vegetation-clad cliffs that characterize Madeira’s north coast. This unforgettable setting, where nature reigns supreme and continually astounds, is truly a testament to the island’s natural beauty and allure.
