Canico, Madeira

The resort of Canico is divided into two different sections, the traditional Old Village with a main square and the modern resort area. Most of the bars and restaurants are hotel based but there are some in the resort. There is a small pebble beach which offers a variety of watersports.


Canico does have a beach, however, it is a pebble beach. The area is great for activities such as walking, hiking and golf but a trip to Funchal may provide a wider variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Perfect for families and couples looking for a peaceful resort due to the lack of nightlife.

The attractive Old Village is centred around the village square and is a maze of cobbbled streets and a 18th Century church.

The resort may not be suitable with those with walking difficulties due to the steep landscape.

Mr L Gravenor, New Malden

Holiday Date:24th Jun 2017
Accommodation:Galo Resort Sport Hotel Galosol
Room:Double Or Twin - Side Sea View
Board:Half Board

Loved the beach area. Great activities could be booked from LokoLoko. Loved it all. Would have liked more fast busses to Funchal from the resort.

Canico is a quiet resort, not for the party animal. Some local bars, restaurants and shops but the choices are limited. Far more in Funchal, a short ride away.

Mrs E Halliwell, Wigan

Holiday Date:26th Dec 2016
Accommodation:Rocamar Hotel

Quiet resort but still a few good restaurants to choose from within 5-10 minute walk.

Mr A Lindsay, Folkestone

Holiday Date:22nd Dec 2016
Accommodation:Dom Pedro Garajau Aparthotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:Room Only
(3 suns)

I can't really rate it as a resort as I only used the room as a base whilst visiting friends, but it does have an indoor and outdoor pool and sea views.
