Canical holidays

An urban port combining choppy seas with majestic mountain scenery, Caniçal is a true postcard setting. This old fishing village has character in spades, right from its quaint harbour to colourful houses. No expense has been spared on nature, so get out and about by day before relaxing as night draws in.

Village appeal

Meander around the glamorous moored boats in this little fishing village and you’ll soon find the main draw – the whale museum. This exhibition of the mammal really delves into the depths of Caniçal’s heritage. But for an extra slice of the authentic, there are chapels and even a few parades.

Beaches and beyond

Wander along the coast and you’ll soon stumble across incredible black sandy beaches fit for lazing around, diving in the warm sea, or just having a dip. Hiking and exploring are big draws here too – not to mention feasting on local dishes! But for dominating squares and picturesque scenery, hit Funchal.
