Madeira Travel Guide: An enchanting island destination
From the plentiful festivals and cultural attractions of Funchal to the majestic mountains, exotic flora and attractive subtropical climate, the island of Madeira is a welcoming year-round destination. Many carefully engineered tunnels throughout the island (including the Via Rápida from the airport to Funchal) make it easy to navigate Madeira’s mountainous terrain by car.
Drive along the island’s coast to discover secluded coves, rocky beaches and charming fishing villages serving the freshest seafood. The southern coastal road is broad and romantic with flowers lining the roads, while the northern coast is much more spectacular, characterised by steep cliffs and valleys. Stop for a refreshing dip in the beautiful rock pools by the village of Porto Moniz, marvel at the vineyards in Seixal or explore the island’s unique volcanic formations with a tour of the mesmerising caves and lava tubes in São Vicente.
Take the winding roads to discover the island’s mountainous interior. The Paul da Serra plateau, the highest point in the western part of the island, offers spectacular views across the unique landscape, where hikers can embark on levada walks through Madeira’s rare Laurissilva forests. Photographers will want to stop to capture the striking beauty of the cliffs of Cabo Girão, the spectacular Nun’s Valley and historical Machico bay.
Simply book your rental car from Discount Rent A Car and pick it up at the airport – the enticing, exciting island of Madeira is yours to explore!
