The main paragliding reas are now at Arco da Calheta and Prazeres with landing at the beaches of Madalena do Mar and Calheta, and at Pico da Cruz, just above Funchal’s main hotel area with landing on the green meadow at Lido.

Awesome views and conditions for paragliding in Arco da Calheta

Joining us is easy: you may come after 4pm to the “ El Mexicano” Pub at Doca da Cavacas, a few minutes outside Funchal, just beside of the Praia Formosa to meet most probably with one of the local pilots (ask at the bar) or, even watch them flying from our special site – just in front of you – if the wind allows it !
