The north coast of the island of Madeira is known for its lively sea. It is not by chance that this is one of the favourite regions for surfers who choose this pearl of the Atlantic to ride the ocean waves. São Vicente Beach is one of the favourite places of these athletes, but not only.
Served by a bathing complex since 2004, it quickly became one of the most attractive spots in the municipality of São Vicente for lovers of water sports such as surf or bodyboarding, for example. This area has a series of infrastructures to support these sports, given the excellent conditions of the sea here - quite different from those on the south coast of Madeira, where the sea is calmer.
In addition, São Vicente Beach has a 620 metres promenade connecting to Varadouro da Baía dos Juncos, the name commonly used to designate Baía do Mota - the municipality's most popular spot among the surfing community.
However, bathers who want to enjoy this space without venturing into extreme sports will also find various facilities. São Vicente Beach has a sunbathing area, as well as a restaurant and a bar.
São Vicente Beach is a very popular spot with surfers due to the excellent sea conditions and its water sports support infrastructures.
