There is actually only one beach in Funchal, which is located at Praia Formose, a spectacular black sand beach adorned with large cobbles. Around the marina however are a range of Madeira’s finest seafood restaurants and cafes which serve the finest of the days catch.

Great Location. Lovely apartment.

5 of 5
Location is just great. You are close to shops, restaurants. Easy to go onto the coast and walk along. Great Walk to Camara do Lobos. Bought a bus card (think you do this in the shopping centre at info desk). Took bus all over Funchal. The apartment is perfect for a couple. Lots of room and a great view. Host Niara is fantastic (used her before and will again). Got her to arrange pickup from airport.

Most perfect location

5 of 5
we loved our stay in Casa da Pinheria - the introduction was perfect, we received a beautiful "welcome food arrangement" and everything was explained very well. The villa is most beautiful, very clean, very good equiped and the location is perfect. Some shops are not far away - for the daily things you need. The VIEW is stunning. The pool was great and warm :-) We loved our week in this beautiful island and most of all in this perfect villa
