Calheta Beach, located on Madeira Island, is renowned for its sandy shores. While it may not boast the same level of natural beauty as some of the more picturesque beaches on the island, it is a popular choice among vacationers, tourists, and local residents of the Calheta region due to its soft sand and easy accessibility. This beach offers a welcoming and family-friendly atmosphere, making it an ideal spot to spend a few hours basking in the warm Portuguese sun. Additionally, visitors have the option to rent umbrellas or sunbeds for added comfort. Ample paid parking is available on the street near the beach, and there is also the option to park inside a nearby grocery store for a nominal fee, which can be offset by making a purchase at the store.
