The sea, always nearby, has an irresistible appeal that provides all of the island’s visitors with some unforgettable times. The sun is a constant presence throughout the year.
Due to the steep slopes on the island, which terminate in abrupt cliffs, the beaches are like pontoons. The sea is calm and clear, delighting those who appreciate nature.
At Funchal marina, in the centre of the city, there are facilities, for those who want to sail, water ski, jet ski, parasail, etc.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, then the waters around Madeira are perfect. The coast at Jardim do Mar and at Paul do Mar has excellent surfing conditions, with waves for all tastes.
The island offers good conditions for all those who wish to enjoy the sun and swim, given that nearly all of the hotels have excellent swimming pools, the majority of which are salt water pools. Don’t leave without visiting the famous natural swimming pools at Porto Moniz, which are carved out of the rock.
Another way to enjoy the very blue sea is to take a cruise along the coast. These fascinating trips can last for just one day and during the trip you can swim, sunbathe and fish.
Seen from the sea, Madeira is a different and even more beautiful island.
