Machico, Madeira

Machico, situated on the southeast of Madeira, just 4.5 km from Madeira airport, is the second main city on the island. Everything is within walking distance, like hotels, the beach, supermarkets, restaurants, the church, pharmacy, health centre, shops, bus station, etc.

The natural bay where the Portuguese discoverers first landed and settled, the river as an ecosystem with some historical flooding events, the geomorphology from the town to Ponta de São Lourenço, with walking paths through native forest and steep sea cliffs allied to its fishing and whaling traditions, Machico has a lot to unveil to its visitors!
