Madeira’s cable cars are just one of the ways you can enjoy absolutely breathtaking views of its fantastic and varied landscape. In Funchal, you make the return journey from the town over to Monte by cable car. This is an enjoyable 10-minute ride that allows you to look out over the unforgettable scenery of Funchal bay.
And don’t miss the cable-car of Fajãs do Cabo Girão, in the district of Câmara de Lobos, which provides access to a beautiful and pleasant beach in only 3 minutes. On the island’s northern coast, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy some beautiful and unusual panoramic views over cultivated fields and lush green countryside.
In both Santana and Achadas da Cruz (Porto Moniz), cable cars are used to provide access to the beach.
For an altogether different view of the archipelago, you can choose to fly over the archipelago in a helicopter, offering you the chance to see the island’s highest peaks jutting out above the clouds. A unique experience that you won’t want to miss!
