Porto de Recreio da Calheta
Marinas and Harbours
The marina has helped to make the most of Calheta's potential, converting its coast into a charming leisure area. It is located about 14 miles west of Funchal and has berths for some 300 yachts from six to 20 metres. It is the second largest marina in Madeira. The marina also boasts a refuelling and wastewater disposal dock, a ramp for hoisting small boats, 400 paid parking places and nautical facilities that include the Calheta Yacht Club.
It is surrounded by about two hectares of spectacular green areas and some retail outlets have moved in to make the complex even more attractive.
