Things to do on holiday in Madeira

Although seemingly a quiet island, Madeira doesn’t fall short of activities and things to do:

  • There are countless hiking trails and Levadas to help you explore the island’s stunning interior, as well as take you to small picturesque towns and villages to discover island life. The Levadas, which follow the islands water system, will reward you with views of waterfalls, aqueducts as well as lush green landscapes and mountains.
  • There are some amazing gardens on the island where you can see a wide variety of exotic plants and flowers. The islands location and climate mean these plants thrive here. A real highlight is the Botanical Garden, perched on a hillside over Funchal these gardens are home to some 2000 species of flora. When here why not hop on the cable car up to Monte Palace Tropical Gardens, once a luxury hotel you will now find exotic plants as well as swans, peacocks and koi carp. The view from up here is wonderful. There are many other gardens dotted around the island know by many as “The Floating Garden.”
  • If you want to have a look at the more traditional sights of the island then head north to Santana. Famous for its triangular thatched houses, this town is like stepping into the past.
  • If you are feeling brave and daring then head to Monte. Make the climb up in the the cable car taking in the views before boarding one of the famous toboggans down to Funchal below. This down hill journey last ten minutes and hits speeds of up to 48 km/hour, steered by two men who are traditionally dressed in white. This exciting ride is not to be missed.

Beaches

Most of the beaches on the island are pebbles and the sand here is black and volcanic, so don’t forgot your flip-flops as it can get very hot. There are a few golden beaches dotted on the island though.

Nightlife

Nightlife is pretty relaxed on the island. Funchal is the centre of most of the activity. Here you will find a selection of bars and a few small clubs. There is a casino and a few shows to take in, and many hotels offer bars with live entertainment too.
