Ribeira do Natal Beach

The Ribeira de Natal beach, running alongside the promenade with the same name, is a free public beach that hugs the shoreline in Machico, close to Caniçal.

It is a little-known beach, but it has great facilities, plenty of space for sunbathing with permanent sun loungers and sun shades, lifeguards during the beach season, a kiosk and a car park.

There is a fine opportunity here for a seaside stroll along the extensive promenade that links this beach to Caniçal.
