Madeira Guide, complete guide inc Funchal and beach Santa Cruz

Madeira is on the way to so many adventures, you may get to see it over and over again. It is worth it, but you could be looking for something different. It may be your first time and you are looking for options.

After three days at sea out to the Madeira, otherwise known as the Garden Island, is a welcome first stop. Famous for over-sweet wine, festive fireworks, and a land-based toboggan run. We have them all here. If you are a beach lover you want a place called Santa Cruz. Catch the local bus 113 at Funchal Edificio 2000. If you can get the 113RS bus it is the direct one that only takes 25mins. There is also a waterpark there. Map to bus garage from port is here.

There are now 6 new films on Madeira. It is a great place to walk around and adventure, or take a Tuk Tuk for one hour then see the places see on the Tuk Tuk. The Botanical Gardens can be a whole day (take lunch)

These films show most of the island tourist places, the bus tour, cable car, and the old town. You can walk into town from the ship and along the promenade or use the shuttle
It is hardly surprising that large and colourful flower markets are one of the most arresting features of Funchal, Madeira’s capital, though next door is the fish market that reminds you the island has a history of working the sea. Fado music is the local music about poverty, working at sea and loss. Madeira is also known for its aquarium where you can dive with sharks, rays, morays and hundreds of other fish. Whale and dolphin watching are other featured activities for visitors.Find your ship’s chat site  +  share pictures  +  experiences to help others      The market town is easily walkable but the further you go the steeper and narrower some of the streets become. On Rua Santa Maria, where there are many restaurants, artwork can be found on most of the doors as this film shows. Sometimes you can smell the aroma of the locally made wicker furniture. Lacework and tapestries are also local trades as is the ubiquitous very sweet Madeira wine. There is a lot to see here and an overnight is special. Places to see, the bank opposite the Cathedral, Rue Santa Maria, the Cable car, Gardens, and Toboggan ride. We also show you the glass cliff-top platform and bus tour.

Many of these sites and more feature in our Madeira film.
