Whether you choose to settle in Funchal, Calheta, Ajuda, Garajau, Canico or Prazeres, getting exercise on the island without countless hours on the treadmill is easy. You can hike over 600 miles of trails through lush valleys and stunning mountain terrain, swim the pristine waters of the Atlantic ocean coastline, partake in a number of water sports, walk along sea-side promenades and walkways, or spend your day on one of the island’s championship golf courses.
