The west coast is the sunniest coast in Madeira, which is why its beaches are very popular with locals and visitors alike.
Câmara de Lobos, Ribeira Brava, Ponta do Sol, Madalena do Mar, Calheta, Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar have excellent access to the sea.
Câmara de Lobos
The seaside area of Câmara de Lobos, a charming fishing village about 8 km from the capital, has been altered to improve access to the sea.
The improvements include the building of a bathing complex, called Piscinas das Salinas, and a promenade decorated with sculptures by Madeiran artists. The works in Largo da República have given a complete facelift to the area near the beach.
