Laid-back coastal living

Visit Funchal


Madeira's capital is a bustling maze of ancient lanes and charming squares lined with street-front cafes, but is also just moments from the natural beauty of the archipelago for everything from sun-soaked relaxation to boat trips and gentle hikes alongside myriad upmarket hotels and restaurants.

Madeira Botanical Garden, Funchal

The beautiful Madeira Botanical Garden is one of Funchal's top draws, with its thousands of bird species and Museum of Natural History. Sheltered in a natural amphitheatre, Funchal's picturesque Atlantic setting also makes it popular with walkers, or its seaside promenade that connects Funchal to nearby Câmara de Lobos is a relaxing alternative. That's not forgetting whale-watching trips, wine tasting and exploring the old town's historic Gothic cathedral and harbour-front Contemporary Art Museum. Don't miss a ride on the cable car to Câmara De Lobos, a picturesque fishing village just 5km from Funchal.
