Funchal

— 7 nights
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.
Step out of Funchal with an excursion to Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools in Porto Moniz--about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: see Off-Road Tours, admire the natural beauty at Botanick√° zahrada Madeira, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

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.
