Câmara de Lobos Bay

The uniqueness of the Câmara de Lobos Bay was immortalised by Winston Churchill, on the day when, in January 1950, sitting at the Espírito Santo Viewpoint, facing the sea, he set up his easel and painted a picture that he would never forget.


After just over seventy years, Madeira's landscape has changed significantly but the picturesque charm of this small cove remained virtually unchanged.


It is not by chance that all travel itineraries about the archipelago include a visit to the Câmara de Lobos Bay... the sensation is that of strolling along a small village by the sea, where the streets are dotted with cosy bars, souvenir shops, restaurants serving traditional delicacies and even a chapel...


The beauty of this scenery is only enhanced by the colourful fishing boats, the famous xavelhas in Madeiran jargon, waving in the blue of the sea. Sweeten your visit with the traditional poncha or, if you're hungry, enjoy a dish with freshly caught fish. In any case, breathe in the uniqueness of the landscape around you, with the certainty that you are in one of the most authentic settings of Madeiran daily life.


Câmara de Lobos Bay is the eternal calling card of this seaside town. An authentic setting that has dazzled visitors over decades.
