Garajau's Natural Reserve

The legislation that created Garajau's Natural Reserve was made to protect a very privileged area of Madeira's coast, in an effort to make it work as an ecological nursery. This is the only exclusive marine reserve in the entire Portugal.

The reserve offers unique conditions as a protected area, not only because of its geographical location but also for its biological diversity and extraordinary crystal clear waters, which generate great scientific, recreational and tourist interest.

Fishing is not allowed within the area and there are regular patrols from the coast guard to ensure that the reserve remains intact.
