Only 20 minutes away from Funchal, Machico is one of the few towns in Madeira where you do not need a car to get around and there is a close-knit remote worker community. The Machico lifestyle is all about doing what you love whether that’s diving, windsurfing, jogging, or heading to a sunrise or sunset yoga class. There are also many community dinners and lots of live music.
The most enticing locale for remote workers is the coworking space Amparo, which is free to use, but you will need to register in advance for it. Situated inside the small, centuries-old yellow fort facing the ocean, you’ll be free to take a swim break or pop by the newly-built outdoor gym just two minutes away. There are also many restaurants like O Gala, O Secreta and Bar Solar to work from on streets covered with small, round stones, which were laid one by one by hand by the first settlers of Madeira.
