Ribeira Brava works around a strong-willed river and a mountainous area made of gorgeous greens. This glorious valley’s got beauty written all over it, so take some time to drink in the resort’s views. Waltz down pebbly patches or trace the pathways and you’ll see some mosaic-tiled streets.
Ornate architecture and whitewashed buildings complete pretty Ribeira Brava, but you’ll find fascinating churches and pavement cafés to pull up a pew in too. For something a bit more unique on your Madeira holiday, you could whisk yourself off on a whale watching trip, or even find your feet in bustling Funchal.
