Things to Do at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Beaches

Some of the best beaches on Madeira are along the north coast and Sao Vicente is no exception. They offer ideal surfing conditions along with snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, sport fishing charters and whale and dolphin spotting.

Enjoy Local Food and Drink

Madeira has some fine local and international restaurants which serve mainly fish and seafood. Bread soup is a local delicacy along with "espada com banana", scabbard fish with baked banana. The Madeira wine makes a wonderful dessert wine to round off any meal.

Walk the Levadas

Madeira is ideal for walking along the levadas which were aqueducts built centuries ago to carry water down to the agricultural areas on the drier south side of the island. They now provide around 600 miles of scenic paved trails with stunning scenery and waterfalls.

Places to Visit Near Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Santana

A little further along the coast from your Sao Vicente holiday villa is the small town of Santana, best known for its traditional A-framed houses, called "palheiros". These tiny houses are covered with thatched straw roofs and are mostly used for storage nowadays. There is also a cable car at Santana which takes visitors past a waterfall on the journey down the cliffs to the shore below.

The main city on Madeira is Funchal and it is located in a natural amphitheatre around the busy port. The compact city centre has plenty of shops and restaurants along with botanical gardens, historic churches and wine cellars for sampling the locally made fortified wine. The old flower market with its exotic blooms is a popular attraction, along with the Cathedral, the Santa Clara Convent and the Sao Lourenco Palace.

Cabo Girao

One of the most popular places to visit from your Sao Vicente villa is the Cabo Girao cliffs. These are some of the world's highest ocean cliffs and offer dizzying views down to the sea 590m (1935 feet) below.
