Funchal

The capital of the island of Madeira for more than 500 years, Funchal represents a laid-back city made popular by its historical sites and climate.
Bring the kids along to Praia de Garajau and Cabo Girao. Get in touch with nature at VMT Madeira and Madeira Explorers. Venture out of the city with trips to Santana (Reserva Natural da Rocha do Navio & Levada Caldeirao Verde) and Machico (Alberto's Store & Ponta de Sao Lourenco). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the natural beauty at Monte Palace Madeira, contemplate the long history of Colegio dos Jesuitas do Funchal, and explore the striking landscape at Valley of the Nuns.

Pearl of the Atlantic
Madeira, the largest island of the eponymous archipelago, serves as one of Portugal's top year-round holiday destinations. Although it draws a growing number of visitors, the island retains much of its relaxed atmosphere and provides an alternative vacation idea for travelers seeking a tropical paradise still relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. The capital city of Funchal, settled in the 15th century, attracts the biggest crowds and serves as a convenient stopover for trans-Atlantic cruise ships sailing from the Caribbean. When you get tired of exploring Fuchal's lively streets and beaches, hop on a boat tour of the archipelago for some whale watching or big game fishing.
