Madeira Island Transportation: 54 reviews and 90 photos

  Our car while we were on Madeira.
by Jerelis

We stayed at Santo da Serra and from our little house it was a 15 minute drive through the lower mountains to reach Machico.

From Machico (south east of the island), there is a highway which goes all the way to Ponta do Sol, which is on the south west of the island. It also passe the capital of Funchal.

Other roads through the mountains are also very well to drive on. We were warned not to drive on rainy days, but (of course) did it any way. Just take it easy and don't do anything stupid. Go with the flow and you'll be alright!
