  • We arrived here with Funchal rented car. It was worth it. It is a very few sandy beach. Maybe not the most beautiful but with amenities. The east (or left) side is a mirrored reflection of the western side (the right). Rocky blocks perfectly collapse ocean waves, allowing children to bathe in a restful ocean. There are several other attractions in the village itself. Museum, Art Gallery, distillery. Along the beach there is a promenade and the road where there are parking lots-payable. But on the access road, a piece from the beach on the hill, outside the toll zone is some free parking spaces. There is also a manufactory in the processing of sugarcane and producing rum. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Admission is free of charge. You can visit the production and rest in stylish rooms, where you need a small fee to taste alcoholic products. How to taste something you can buy in the shop.

  • This is the reported sand. It is large and well-sheltered; 2 m on the other side of the port and in front of the other Hotel Savoy de Calheta

  • These golden sand beaches are amazing, if the sun is shining it's shining here. Lots of restaurants here, a couple of hotels by the beach. This is a lovely bar which is at one end of the beach along with a children's playground one of the best in this area. The scenery is beautiful and on a nice hot day or not so hot if you are brave you can swim from one beach to the other.
  • Artificial beach. Bring water shoes, you will step on many stones before entering the water. Umbrellas an sun beds for rent. In summer bring your own umbrella. Public toilets are very clean.
