History of Jardim do Mar

History of Jardim do Mar

If there is a place in Madeira that stands out from the other in the Island in terms of waves, that place is undoubtedly Jardim do Mar.

According to accounts, the name Jardim do Mar (garden of the sea) is owed to the abrupt transition of upright bare slopes into a green and cheerful resort, leaning over the ocean in picturesque way, a beautiful place which in the past used to be covered by a mantle of wild flowers.

Amongst the oldest settlers, reference should be made to Gonçalo Alves Araújo, who came from the mainland to Madeira Island in the end of the 15th century, and kept plots of uncultivated land.
