The town of Canico is on the southern coast of Madeira and consists of a traditional, old-fashioned village, 18th century church and village square. Yet only 2 kilometres down a vertiginous winding road, you’ll reach Canico de Baixo, a contemporary holiday resort area that comprises of trendy villas and hotels. The word ‘fusion’ best summarises this resort. Here, you can relax on the pebbly shore to the east of the village, go swimming in the lido area or sunbathe on the rocks.
While the pebbly beach lacks the barefoot appeal of the sandy beaches in Santo Porto, this area is a must go for those who are serious about their water sports. Another great activity for energetic vacationers is hiking along the levadas, or aqueducts, and enjoying the wonderful natural beauty of the area.
