    Drying fish on the beach.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dried fish is all over the harbour front and the little rocky beach in Camara de Lobos.
    The fishermen hang the´m up on the boats and on little racks right on the harbourfront and that really adds some charm to the place.
    The fish you see might at first glance look like codfish, but they do not catch cod in the sea around Madeira and the fish you see there is actually small sharks that they dry.
    they are mostly used as snacks in the local pubs after they are dried and they have kinda become the trademark of Camar de Lobos.

    The bailinho

    Bailinho is the main folk music in Camara de Lobos. Despique is one type of the folk music that exists only in Camara de Lobos. The songs are allways performed by a women and a men. And one tryes to annoy the other. It's really funny!
    Camara de Lobos locals are called Xavelhas by the Funchal locals. But never call them that name. They simply don't like it.
