Things to Do at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Beaches

Some of the best beaches on Madeira are along the north coast and Sao Vicente is no exception. They offer ideal surfing conditions along with snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, sport fishing charters and whale and dolphin spotting.

Enjoy Local Food and Drink

Madeira has some fine local and international restaurants which serve mainly fish and seafood. Bread soup is a local delicacy along with "espada com banana", scabbard fish with baked banana. The Madeira wine makes a wonderful dessert wine to round off any meal.

C'est une maison spacieuse qui a été rénovée avec goût conservant un côté typique mais avec tout le confort. Tout est parfait même un barbecue intérieur! Le jardin très fleuri est parfaitement entretenu . L'accueil est chaleureux , les propriétaires sont présents avec discrétion. La situation permet de rayonner sur toute l'île , de partir pour de belles randonnées et de profiter de la mer . Merci à Maria et Manuel pour leur accueil. Nous reviendrons et nous recommandons ce cottage

With a nice view and relatively close by car to calheta beach. Reception by a local friendly agency, which brought us to the house . We recommend this house if you want to stay near Calheta on a good location.
