Holidays to Madeira

Holidays to Madeira, affectionately known as the “Pearl of the Atlantic”, have enjoyed a renaissance of late as holidaymakers flock to the island for relaxation amongst the lush countryside and clear warm waters.

Nestled off the coast of Northern Africa, cheap holidays to Madeira unlock a rugged landscape that offers endless opportunities to explore and is a haven for hikers and climbers with 6,000 foot mountains to scale!

However, if this sounds like too much effort on a cheap holiday in Madeira, you could always settle down in one of the many bars in Funchal to enjoy a glass or two of the famed local wine.

Soft Sand and Shingle Beaches to Enjoy on Holiday in Madeira

The island isn’t known for its beaches but it is possible to enjoy a cheap package holiday to Madeira full of beach lounging and swimming in the ocean. A popular beach on the island can be found at Calheta. The man made stretch of soft sand is a hotspot for holidaymakers keen to inject a dash of seaside fun into their cheap holiday to Madeira.

 

Funchal has an interesting black sand and shingle beach in Praia Formosa that is usually full of holidaymakers relaxing in the sun after a busy day absorbing the many cultural treats that the capital has to offer.

 

The volcanic black sand can be found on most of the island’s beaches but if it’s the textbook golden sand and palm trees you want, a short boat trip to Porto Santo will bring all your cheap beach holiday dreams to life!

 

Get Your Walking Boots Ready for a Holiday on Madeira

The island has long enjoyed a reputation as being a walker’s paradise for groups of friends on a cheap holiday in Madeira. The terrain is rather mountainous due to past volcanic activity and the resulting alluvial surfaces have fed a fertile and colourful countryside.

 

Machico on the east coast is a popular spot for walkers because of its prominent vistas and from here it is easy to find the celebrated golf course at Santo Da Serra. The 27-hole course is set high up offering excellent views across the island as you tee-off.

 

For a less conventional way to enjoy the landscape on a cheap holiday in Madeira you could dabble in the local tradition of street tobogganing! When in Monte, which provides an excellent view over Funchal, you can hop in a wicker basket with a friend and be guided down the busy roads alongside cars and pedestrians all in the name of excitement!

The capital, Funchal, is the home of shopping on Madeira with boutiques packed into the narrow streets of the city centre. Here, shoppers on a cheap package holiday in Madeira will delight at the array of designer labels available as well as traditional Madeira souvenirs.

 

For a slightly different shopping experience, Ribeira Brava has numerous shops designed like homes, which can be a bit confusing but add plenty of character and interest to your shopping experience on a cheap holiday in Madeira. When the shopping is done, it is time to relax and enjoy the many sumptuous flavours of Madeira cooking.

 

Funchal, Ribeira Brava and Garajau are the three popular places to be when it comes to quality food on a cheap holiday in Madeira. Funchal and Ribeira Brava, which have embraced tourism, have a wide variety of restaurants and cafes serving international flavours and lots of local produce like fish.

 

For a real taste of traditional Madeira cuisine, Garajau on the south coast near to Funchal, has some excellent local eateries offering the best in Madeira food and wine.
