COASTEERING IN MADEIRA

is performed in the eastern part of Madeira, at natural reserve with unique landscape: including amazing rock formations, endemic plants and crystal clear sea. That place is optimal for practicing coasteering!

Coasteering is a physical activity that encompasses movement along the intertidal zone of a rocky coastline on foot or by swimming, without the aid of boats, surf boards or other craft. Coasteering may include all or some of the following:

Swimming or Adventure Swimming:

in calm water, rough or white water, and/or tidal currents. Dressing for swimming in the sea (wetsuits, buoyancy aids etc.) is an integral part of coasteering; even on routes where it is possible to stay dry.

Climbing, scrambling, canyoning, sea level traversing:

the very nature of the coastline that is needed for coasteering demands aspects of these activities. Ropes, as security on rock, are not used. Any climbing activity usually takes place above deep water, with safety spotters used where appropriate. Coasteering is never a dry climbing activity.

Jumping and Diving:

are often seen as an appealing and exciting part of coasteering.

*Should bring: sneakers, swimsuit and towel.
