Garajau Cable car

The modern cable car at Garajau descends 200 metres to the pebbled shores of Garajau beach, situated in a pleasant bay. This spot features a small café and a popular scuba diving centre, which offers a range of courses and equipment rental for exploring the exciting underwater world of the protected Garajau Marine Reserve. The beach is quiet and offers wonderful crystal clear waters for swimming.

Garajau is a small coastal village close to Caniço, east of Funchal. Local attractions include the imposing Cristo Rei statue, which gazes across the Atlantic. Take a bracing walk along the Ponta da Garajau headland, which boasts spectacular views of the Desertas Islands on a clear day.
