How to get there

Paul do Mar is 60 km from the airport and can be reached in about 55 minutes. Take the

main road out of the airport, sign posted Funchal which soon becomes a two-lane motorway (“Via

rapida”) which you follow right to its end near Ribeira Brava, about 35km away.

Exit the Via rapida in the right-hand lane, heading for Ribeira Brava. Continue towards the seafront of

Ribeira Brava. Before the seafront there is a roundabout where you turn right and enter the tunnel

towards Ponta do Sol.

Continue through Lugar de Baixo, then through tunnels to Madalena do Mar. Proceed along the seafront

of Madalena, then proceed through some more tunnels until you reach a roundabout and take the

Calheta exit.

When you arrive at the Calheta roundabout take the exit for Prazeres. Then follow the signs for Jardim

do Mar and PAUL DO MAR. Jardim is the village just before the PAUL DO MAR tunnel – which is the

last tunnel.
