    Calheta - Paul da Serra

    In the central highlands, you find a high plateau called Paul da Serra, about 1.400 meters above sea level - a flat plateau inhabited by sheep, grass and heather making a strong contrast to the steep, surrounding mountains. A great pace to start hiking trails.

    Calheta - Jardim do Mar

    Jardim do Mar became the island’s meeting point for the international surfing community. Due to its location, the Madeira archipelago is a privileged spot to receive swells of the North Atlantic and has all sorts of waves, from point breaks to reef breaks. The world championship of surf was once here.

    Calheta - Paul do Mar

    Paul do Mar is one of the most important fishing centres of the archipelago. The ocean provides this parish with an incredibly rich variety of fish, to such an extent that it has become a reference in the world of gastronomy.

    Paul do Mar beach, also known as the Ribeira das Galinhas (Chicken’s River) beach, is the perfect place for those looking for a quiet secluded beach. Even when it offers sunshine galore, it has the advantage of never being overcrowded.

    Calheta - Ponta do Pargo seaview

    Ponta do Pargo's name came from its location on the extreme coastal west point (Ponta) and for being rich in a species of fish called 'pargo'.

    Due to its plane terrain this is a very distinguished area on Madeira Island. Tranquil and peculiar, this parish maintains its charm almost all year round, becoming especially alive when religious festivals occur. Another event that makes it shine is the Apple Festival.
