Madeira Island has stunning natural landscapes and hot temperatures all year-round. Get on the hiking trails that run alongside the man-made irrigation channels. Enjoy unforgettable views over clear blue waters and cliffs covered in green vegetation. Spot brightly coloured and sweetly scented flowers in the spring. Chill out on sandy beaches, try out thrilling water sports or delve into the island’s enthralling cultural heritage.
Take in Madeira’s idyllic natural scenery with a levada walk: the levadas are a series of mini-canals developed by early settlers to distribute water around the island. Explore a network of more than 870 miles (1,400 kilometres) of irrigation canals and follow them to waterfalls and lagoons, as well as valleys, mountain ranges and laurel forests.
Brave the glass-floored skywalk at Cabo Girão, one of the highest ocean cliffs in the world. Standing 1,902 feet (580 meters) above the water, you can spot Funchal, the island’s largest city, and Câmara de Lobos from this dramatic location.
Visit the gorgeous village of Santana, known for its multicoloured A-framed cottages, called palheiros. These charming thatched-roof residences are unique to the island and well worth a visit.
See the ornate geometric patterns decorating the roof of Funchal's cathedral, Sé Catedral de Nossa Senhora da Assunção. Constructed in the 16th century, this Moorish-influenced cathedral also features beautiful Baroque altars, gilded choir stalls and intricate tiling.
Don’t miss the views over Funchal from Jardim Botanico, a beautiful botanical garden. Walk along the well-labelled paths and admire collections of cacti and anthuriums. Look for the overlapping roots of an ancient heather tree, which is said to be more than 10 million years old.
Calheta Beach may be man-made, but its golden sands and clear waters are nonetheless scenic. Canoe, windsurf, swim or stop for some fresh seafood at one of the restaurants found along the beach. Be sure to sample the region’s unique white rum called aguardente.
Madeira Island is located about 350 miles (563.3 kilometres) from Morocco. Regular flights leave daily from Lisbon.

Easy walk in to Funchal town. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. We were there when the coronavirus started and the staff were excellent throughout at a time when they must have been very concerned about their own prospects as the hotel closing the day after we left.
Staff always friendly and helpful. Double room with sea view balcony was fine, huge bed! Breakfast buffet could hardly be better whether you want a light continental or full English. Well situated with a good selection of restaurants nearby and easy walk to Funchal town. Lunch snacks also good quality ...
Excellent location on the waterfront in Funchal. Wonderful views of the carnival processions from the hotel. Ideal hotel to stay in during the many waterfront activities ie flower festival new year fireworks
Had a lovely stay here. The hotel was very clean, staff friendly, food was the only thing that let the hotel down, more choice needed
This hotel is in a good position - between old town/harbour and Lido/promenade, with amazing sea views. It was spotlessly clean, room service was every day, overall the hotel is a little dated and areas are tired so an upgrade is needed to bring it back up to its 5 star rating. Breakfast was good ...
