Remote paradises around the Island

“Fajã” is a term with obscure origins that designate a flat land, in general cultivable, with a small extension, situated on the sea front, formed by detached rubble from the cliffs.

The word “fajã” is used in all of Macaronésia, being very common in Azores, in Madeira Island and in many Islands of Cape Verde.

During our “Rota das Fajãs” trip, we are able to observe countless “fajãs” along the whole south west coast of Madeira Island.
