The area enjoys good access to the sea, a new marina complex, and the natural beauty of the coastline, making it the perfect location of choice for holiday and permanent residences alike. Calheta also serves as a starting point for various mountain walks, with levadas in abundance. The future golf course in Calheta and a second marina complex in Ponta do Sol also adds to the attractions of the area.
All services are available in the area, including supermarkets, shops, banks, medical services, post office, schools, hotels, etc. The "Quinta das Mudas" cultural center, with world class art events in congresses, has proven to be another great asset.
