Surfing in Machico

Located on the east coast of the island of Madeira, just over 20 km from Funchal, is one of the most sought-after surfing spots in the archipelago. Surfing in Machico is lived with particular enthusiasm by local population, which gives this place an even warmer atmosphere for wave lovers.

Here, the landscapes are tinted by the shades of green that fill the mountains, which merge harmoniously with the blue of the sea. Besides being translucent, the water has a mild temperature all year round - yes, you can even, in Europe, spend Christmas surfing in Machico without worrying about the cold.
