And here we are at surfers' paradise! Those wishing to escape Funchal's busy beaches will choose Jardim do Mar with its three beaches — 'Portinho', 'Enseada' and 'Ponta Jardim'.
Portinho beach is a small popular pebble beach, with no surveillance, where you will find showers and parking, as well as a bar and restaurant nearby.
These beaches gained a new image in the national and international surf family with the International Surf Competition that made the name 'Jardim do Mar' known all over the world. At 'Ponta Jardim' it is possible to observe surfers' acrobatics almost all year round.
Jardim do Mar attracts visitors mainly because of its beauty and isolation. Here it is just about you, the ocean and the mountains!
