I visited Madeira several times over the past 10 years. Often people ask me what they should visit when they travel to Madeira. Here’s my list of things to do on Madeira:
The west part of Madeira is less touristic than the area around Funchal. And it hides some nice surprises. The Natural Pools in Porto Moniz are definitely worth going west.
While these days keep me busy at work and in the preparation of my antarctic trip, it also allows me to look back on some past travel, and to share that. Today: Travel to Madeira.
Madeira Levada walks are one of Madeira’s strong points. When you travel to Madeira, you should take the time to discover the Levadas. On Madeira, levada walks gain popularity year over year. That is, if you are not afraid of heights and in good condition.
Estalagem Ponta do Sol is a Design hotel, on a cliff at about 20 minutes out of Funchal.
When visiting madeira, walking the levadas is one of the attractions one should not miss.
