    Ribeira Brava - Madeira

    I will not forget - June 23rd in Portugal is to be lived in Porto or Braga, in Madeira in Ribeira Brava. The advantage is that, in Madeira, the festivities last longer, and we could attend it on the 29th, that, in the continent is reserved to St Peter. Somewhat confusing, but the saints are friends, they don't mind, and the important is to party. Isn't it?

    Beach is not the main thing in Madeira - they are few, small, and without sand.

    Ribeira Brava is no exception, but is was the larger and better pebble beach that I saw in Madeira.
