All shops, restaurants and tour operators are only a few minutes' walk away. The famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of the unique wine growing on Pico can be reached within 10 minutes.


Just 200 m from our the ‘Calma do Mar’ you will find a swimming pool including natural pools and  another public bathing area of Madalena.

The other bus line takes the south route from Madalena to Ribeirinha and back.
