    Clifftop Caniço can help you relax

    Watched over by the towering statue of Christ the King at Garajau, and spilling down its own series of super-steep cliffs to meet the salt-spraying rollers of the Atlantic Ocean, Caniço's nothing if not dramatic. But delve within, to the sea-view villas and pool-ready Caniço holiday rentals that line the rocks, and the drama gets replaced with a chilled town of palm-shaded promenades and black-stone beaches. Fado sometimes echoes from the cantinas along the shore, the rustic village of Camacha awaits in the nearby hills and the buzzing capital of Funchal is just down the road for that fix of energy.

    Underwater and overwater in Caniço

    If you've managed to bag yourself one of the luxurious Caniço holiday rentals with a pool, overlooking the whitecaps of the Atlantic, then you might want to do nothing but kick back with a good book and relax – you could even spot whales splashing in the distance. Talking of marine life, the whole south-west coast of Madeira is a real hotspot for scuba diving, with groupers and massive Atlantic manta rays all gliding through the reserves of Garajau. Then there's the island's famous hinterland, just waiting for hikers and mountain bikers and wildlife lovers.

    Going high and making a splash in Caniço

    While the view from those high-perched Caniço holiday rentals might be nothing short of gasp-inducing, the panorama from the soaring Miradouro do Cristo Rei is something you simply have to see. A colossal statue of Christ the King looms up there – thankfully it's possible to ride the swinging cable car straight up from the black-rock beach of Garajau below. After that, you could drive around the coast to the Aquaparque in Santa Cruz. Here, you can scoot down water slides, bob on the lazy river or splash in the pools.

    Come to Caniço whenever you want

    Caniço remains one of the hottest family destinations in Madeira, drawing folk to its clifftop villas all year round. That's made possible by a pleasant climate that means mild mercury levels dominate from December to March If you're looking to soak in the rays by the poolside, you might prefer the summer months, between May and August, which also happens to be the top time for whale watching and scuba diving. For hiking and outdoors adventures, it's best to wait for autumn, in September and October, when the weather is a tad cooler.

    Jaw-dropping cliffs hoist Caniço high

    Rising almost perpendicular from the beaches that fringe the Santa Cruz coastline of Madeira Island, Caniço really is the sort of place you'd put on a postcard. High walls of sinewy grass and rock soon level out to host palm-shaded streets, sometimes dropping down to craggy coves and paved promenades. The ocean is one of the major draws in the area, with the Garajau Parcial Nature Reserve reigning as one of the top diving spots in the whole archipelago – a place to see mantas and groupers and more. Whales and dolphins also swim in the surrounding currents all year round.
