"Funchal" Madeira Island Things to Do Tip by sandysmith

Madeira Island Things to Do: 361 reviews and 672 photos

  view over Funchal
by sandysmith

Most people visiting Madeira will stay in Funchal - as indeed do half the population of this lush sub-tropical island. Its a good base for visiting the island with its new roads and good bus service to the outlying villages but do spend at least a couple of days in the capital enjoying the sights of the harbour, markets, old town and the village of Monte above where you can take the wicker sledge ride down. More more info on my Funchal page - please check it out.
