Madalena do Mar is a small village located on the southwest coast of the island with beautiful sea and cliff views. Its name came from the legendary Polish Prince of the 15th century, Henry Allemão. He lost a battle in 1444 and was given land by João Gonçalves Zarco and established a great-populated farm where he built a chapel and dedicated to the Saint Mary Madeleine.
It is a characteristic fishing village with a beautiful promenade along the pebble beach. Its location and accompanying climate has helped it to establish the biggest banana plantations on the island.
There are several restaurants for lazy lunches or evenings out.
Calheta with its man-made golden beaches is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.
Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguadente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce.
