The Exchange

Our Famous Maktub Bar, is situated in the beautiful costal village of Paul Do Mar, on the sunny side of Madeira Island ... With spectacular sunset views every day ... its the best place on the island to drink a Mojito! We are directly on the beach, so a great location to swim in summer and perfect surf in winter!

Program Details

The bar is a very busy, fast paced, super cool surf bar! And we are a restaurant too, serving delicious, fresh food!
We also have apartments above the bar, which we rent out to surfers and tourists.
We are open 6 days per week.


The help I am looking for from a volunteer is as follows ...

I am looking for someone with good positive energy, hard working and fast learning.
The work would consist of, a little bit of everything, whatever is needed day to day.
Work in the bar, cleaning in the bar or in the apartments, going to the supermarket for supplies etc.

I am expecting 35hours per week ... over 6 days. Some days may be busier than others, so hours are different, day to day.
35 hours work is expected in exchange for, accommodation in your own private apartment.
I also supply breakfast, for you to prepare yourself. And lunch and dinner, with the staff team in the restaurant, is included.

Because the bar is so busy, I may need extra hours of help, after your 35 hours per week. If these extra hours are needed, which is very likely, I will pay you for your time! Opportunity to earn some money is available!
