The best 10 things to do in Madeira

Madeira  is, without a doubt, the witness that nature has wonderful things. A natural heritage of Portugal, Madeira is a paradise with such importance for its inhabitants and for all the Portuguese… So that you do not miss the opportunity to visit and make the most of the region, we show you ten opportunities that only this place can offer.

Spend a day in Funchal

This is the capital of the Autonomous Region of Madeira which, although small and therefore perfect to see in a single day, houses a large part of the Madeiran population. Here you can see the architecture spread around the city and some colorful markets, among others.

Rent a car and explore the island

With only 800 Km2 of area, here you have the possibility to rent a vehicle and drive along the coast while observing the steep cliffs, the crystal clear waters, the colorful flowers and the banana fields.

Take a walk (or several) along the levadas

Levadas are very common irrigation channels in Madeira. Along the paths, well marked and safe, the scenery of the Laurissilva Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999 and one of the 7 wonders of Portugal, is absolutely a must-see. Arriving at the top of the mountains or at one of the many waterfalls, the view is even more wonderful. > Florest

Diving in the Madeira Aquarium

In the Aquarium of Madeira you can venture and dive into 500 thousand liters of salt water with sharks, rays, morays and hundreds of other fish. Always with an instructor, of course. An impressive experience …

Refresh in the natural salt pools

In the village of Porto Moniz, in the northwestern part of the island, several natural salt pools contemplate the magnificent landscape with the Atlantic Ocean in the background. Framed by volcanic rocks that hold sea water and replenished at high tide, these pools can provide you with a truly relaxing time. > Porto Moniz

Watch whales and dolphins

In Madeira there are about 80 species of cetaceans, 29 of which can be seen throughout the year. Take a boat trip and have a great chance to watch and enjoy the dolphin jokes. With luck, a family of whales will also appear. > Madeira Outdoor

Practice canyoning

Situated on the outskirts of the capital, the Ecological Park of Funchal offers a natural setting where you can experience canyoning (in English, canyoning). This radical sport consists in the exploration of a river, in abseiling by the cascades and cliffs and to swim by the waterways. > ARCM

Savor the dishes typical of Madeiran cuisine to the sound of Fado

Enjoy an excellent meal in the Sabor a Fado restaurant in Funchal. Here, in this small and cozy restaurant, the dishes, usually typical of the island, are served by the family who runs it and who takes turns between this task and the cantorias.

Contemplate the views of Cabo Girão Skywalk

Similar to the Grand Canyon in the USA, Cabo Girão is one of the largest tourist attractions in Madeira. It receives about 1800 daily visitors and is the second highest promontory in the world (580 meters above sea level).
