Simply enchanting! Blessed with rare natural beauty, the region of Calheta includes eight parishes (Arco da Calheta, Calheta Village, Estreito da Calheta, Jardim do Mar, Paul do Mar, Prazeres, Fajã da Ovelha and Ponta do Pargo) spread over a total area of 116 square kilometres.
Whether you walk along by the sea, hike in the steep mountains or descend to the valleys, you will enjoy the many wonders of nature surrounding you.
The sky spreads before you like a canvas in tones of blue, and the beauty of the sea views with its crystal waters attracts your eyes and invites you to take a swim (either on the sandy beach in Calheta village or on the pebble beaches of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar) when the heat is felt with greater intensity.
In order to provide you with some knowledge of the history of this area, in the ‘Visit Calheta’ section you will find a few facts related to each of the parishes of the Calheta municipality, the largest of the Archipelago of Madeira, including not only cultural attractions, such as Mudas museum, and traditional places, like Engenho da Calheta, but also local events, as the Limpet Festival, in Paul do Mar.
