Funchal Old Market

The old market of Funchal is a must-see because of the beautiful interiors and the tropical fruit and vegetables they sell. There is also a fish market at the rear end of the market, and a flower market at the entrance. This market is open every day except on Sundays.

Address: Old Market

Directions: Beginning of the old city center.

Whale and dolphin watching near Cabo Girao

You can book a catamaran tour, lasting 3 hours, for 25 Euros. You will sit on a boat and be able to watch whales and dolphins in the Atlantic. I was so lucky to see two bridal whales. The crew will take you close to Cabo Girao, allegedly Europe's steepest cape (550 meters). The surroundings are unique and beautiful, especially on your way back, along the beautiful coastline passing Câmara de Lobos and Funchal´s outer western area.

Address: Funchal Marina

Directions: Ask at the Funchal Port tourist agencies, where you should book one day in advance.
