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.

Funchal

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.

Perfect to help one relax. The location is superb and within easy reach of various other parts of the island. If you don't have a car, you can walk along the sea front in both directions and take the local bus. The manager was helpful, replied to our emails promptly, and allowed us to leave our bags in the apartment as we had a late flight. Directions were accurate and helpful. It seems too that there is a coach just outside the hotel going to the airport, although we never used it. We didn't spend a lot of time indoors but there was a television, washing machine, dishwasher, all in good working order. The rooms were spacious. We'd like to go back and would recommend this apartment.

The house was perfect and only a short walk down the hill to the old town of Funchal. It was a very clean and stylish place with a lovely garden and great views of town. Carolina was very helpful and was always on hand for help. I would definitely recommend the house to anybody visiting Madeira and would stay here again on a return trip to the island. Matt
