The climate of Calheta (Portugal)
Calheta is a city and a municipality in the southwestern part of the Madeira island. Besides fishing and agriculture tourism is the main source of income. Two popular beaches can be found here as well as a marina. The village is known for its Aguardente, a local brandy that forms the basis for Poncha da Madeira. The Aguardente can best be compared to white rum. The local distillery is open to the public. Calheta is also known for its beautiful old churches. Calheta has a warm maritime climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Because of this influence extremes in weather are uncommon in Calheta and on the entire island Madeira. However, when a socalled Leste wind comes from the Sahara temperatures may rise. This wind supplies dry and warm air causing temperatures to rise within a short period of time. The temperature of the Atlantic Ocean is about 20 degrees Celsius all year round.
