A few minutes’ drive away in Calheta village you’ll find an array of shops, some fantastic seafood restaurants, pretty churches to wonder round and a modern marina. It is also home to one of the first man-made beaches on the Island, boasting beautiful soft golden sand and crystal-clear water, making it an ideal destination for families. And with activities ranging from surfing, canoeing, whale-watching, windsurfing and even paragliding, there is something for everyone in this alluring corner of the Island.

The 2092km of hiking trails that people travel from all over the globe to experience follow the narrow stone irrigation channels that criss-cross the Island. Taking you across lush mountain countryside to deep into the Laurislilva forest, you will witness awe-inspiring Ocean panoramas and discover spectacular hidden waterfalls.
