The Madeira region
The city of Funchal of today is very different from Funchal at the time of pirates and fennel . In fact, this modern city , cosmopolitan and rejuvenated is famous for luxury restaurants , the amazing hotels of 4 and 5 stars . Ie , is known for its style and its content.
The town itself is set in a magnificent natural amphitheater , facing the Atlantic and contrasting with the towering mountains . Situated on the southern island of Madeira , located in the sunniest coast in the middle of banana plantations and wonderful gardens where flowers emerge throughout the year , housed in lush mountains , Funchal town is a fresh and relaxed during the day and with a vibrant nightlife .
Funchal is also , for many years , one of the main ports for passenger ships of the Atlantic , and its port for cruise ships is located near the city center . The approach to the harbor of Funchal is widely recognized as one of the two most spectacular in the world . It is now tradition that most European cruise operators pass on his first trip here , it is very common to see four cruise ships arriving at the same time. Once ashore , the cafes , restaurants and historic sites that dot this capital are merely steps away.
Tourists in Funchal also gather to enjoy activities like diving in the clear waters , boat trips , swimming with dolphins , spend the day at sea to watch whales , go on excursions along the coast and the mountainous forests smelling eucalyptus paragliding on the coast , enjoy great rounds of golf on famous courses of the island or simply a snack try the numerous street cafés on the terraces or gardens.
In fact , on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings , Funchal comes alive after midnight . Residents and tourists more informed enjoying dinner at the usual time , but instead of leaving right after the meal , go home and rest for a few hours before leaving for Madeira night.
Clear that Funchal has not lost his famous charm, because tourists ( the beach and the night) live peacefully together . The island not only strives to care for the more mature tourists who enjoy long walks in the sun, enjoy the scenery and outdoor dining , as it is also an increasingly attractive destination for young modern Europeans , many of them from the mainland to the island on weekends weekend just to enjoy the festivities and entertainment nightly . Attracts them to ample supply and the fact that , unlike what happens in most European cities , there was virtually crime in the streets , or groups of drunken inadvisable to make some parts of the island . Funchal is a city truly secure - something new tourists , fun-loving, like and respect.
The promenade in Lido area in Funchal , already known for tourist facilities it offers, has become an area more suited for leisure and is much sought after by locals as by tourists . Surrounded by palm trees and pleasant gardens , this promenade connects the Lido area and Formosa Beach , offering lovely views over the sea and Cape Girão those who wander there , walk, run ... or just relax in one of the many benches scattered along the route !
Feel like taking a dip or catch some sun ? Along this promenade choices are many more . There are three public pools - the beach resort of Lido with the largest saltwater pool , the Club Naval and recent beach resort of Ponta Gorda - we have several facilities and in which is saltwater pool , children's pool , sports activities , restaurants , snack bars , etc. ... everything you need to spend a relaxing day on the sea front !
Along the promenade of the Lido is still some restaurants that specialize in different types of cuisine - some are hidden within the bathing complex - which give you the opportunity to enjoy your meal while dazzles with the magnificent setting of the sun and views of the ocean!
Among the many festivities , perhaps the best known is the display of Fireworks Fireworks New Year , the biggest in the world (yes , the world ) according to the Guinness Book of Records . The spectacular and colorful Carnival Flower Festival , full of samba and people in costumes themselves , are not. During the month of June, the Festival of the Atlantic , with an International Fireworks Fireworks that takes place every Saturday , will impress you .
Christmas is a fantastic time , full of fantasy, with lights and festive decorations that light up the entire city and the night sky . The urban center becomes in Wonderland and lights flashing .
