How to get there


Drive out of the airport onto the fast road towards FUNCHAL.

After approximately 30 minutes on the fast road you will come off following the directions to RIBEIRA BRAVA.

At the roundabout at the end of the dual carriage way you will enter a tunnel on the right going towards PONTA DE SOL

From Ponta de Sol follow the directions to CALHETA.

Madalena do Mar village is half way between Ponta de Sol and Calheta.

It is easily recognisable as it has a long stretch of road alongside the beach.

When you get to the end of this road, there is a bend with a car park on the left hand side.

Keep going following the main road that then bends to the left and goes over a very small bridge.

Just 100 meters from the bridge and before the tunnel you will see a ramp taking you down to the beach.

Drive down and park in the square facing the beach.

The cottage (Nr 11) is a green door at the bottom of an alleyway on the left hand of the square.
