• Garajau

The legislation that created Garajau's Natural Reserve, in 1986, was made to protect a very privileged area of Madeira's coast, in order to avoid desertification of the seabed of that coastal area of the island and repopulating it in terms of marine fauna.

The Partial Nature Reserve of Garajau lies in the south of Madeira island, to the east of Funchal, occupying an area that reaches six miles.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.
