From the historic point of view this is probably the most interesting town on the island as Machico was the landing point of the discoverers of Madeira.

This peculiar corner of the island boasts the oldest church, the Capela dos Milagres, and two forts still bear witness of the locals’ defence against the many pirate attacks on the village.

Machico has a wonderful beach and good facilities for both swimming and sunbathing.

This tranquil town boasts some excellent guesthouses and restaurants and is a good starting point for a number of nice ‘levada’ walks.

Hoppa offers private transfers in Machico.
