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.
You'll get in some beach time at Praia de Garajau and Vereda da Faja Grande. Blandy's Wine Lodge and Church of Sao Pedro are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Funchal's surroundings by going to Church of the Good Lord Jesus (in Ponta Delgada), Ponta de Sao Lourenco (in Machico) and Ponta do Pargo (Capela Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte - Capela do Cabo & Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse). There's lots more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Caravel Art Center, explore the striking landscape at Cabo Girao, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico do Arieiro, and enjoy the sand and surf at Faja Do Rancho Beach.
