"Madeira" Madeira Island by Cockleshell
Madeira Island Travel Guide: 815 reviews and 2,029 photos
I enjoyed two weeks travelling around this small island making use of a hire car for 8 days.
I soon realised that there are very few flat bits in Madeira! Some of the roads are quite challenging and a little scary too. Sheer drops from the high cliff roads but thankfully not too much traffic.
I didn't miss the fact that there are no natural sandy beaches.
The mountain scenery is wonderful .. and so many waterfalls.
I did a couple of easy levada walks which I enjoyed and would have liked to have done more. And I especially enjoyed walking in the mountains.
Funchal old town at Christmas time was wonderful. Very colourful. Funchal itself has many things to see and do but I'm glad I ventured out and experienced much more of this beautiful island.
Such wonderful colours can be seen in this stunning environment more travel advice
I enjoyed watching this lady spin her yarn. more travel advice
