Venture out of the city with trips to Machico (Alberto's Store & Ponta de Sao Lourenco) and Santana (Reserva Natural da Rocha do Navio & Levada Caldeirao Verde). Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape at Valley of the Nuns, take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Palace Madeira, don't miss a visit to Miradouro Pico Dos Barcelos, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico do Arieiro.

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.
