Groups at the Melia Madeira Mare Hotel
Funchal is the perfect destination for groups who appreciate outdoor leisure and look forward to indulging in landscapes of endless natural beauty. In order to fully experience the remarkable mountain ranges that characterise this town, be sure to book a Levada Walk and hike around the island to explore its hidden gems.
The waters that border this Madeiran town are an attraction of its own. Surfing and scuba diving, as well as big game fishing, dolphin and whale watching are suggestions that will certainly please groups who are passionate about the sea and comfortable climates.
How about seeing Funchal...from above? Ride a cable car up to the village of Monte and travel over the stunning natural features of this location. The pretty Botanical Garden is another appealing choice for a day trip and can also be accessed by cable car.
Because Funchal is all about tradition, there will be many cultural experiences to enjoy. The Madeira Story Centre and the Madeira Theme Park trace the historical background of the island and are great points of entertainment for families with children. Walking throughout the cobble-stoned streets of the town, admiring its typical architecture or dining at a regional-cuisine restaurant in the old town quarter are all highly recommended.
However, you won’t need to be present during a folk festival to see this town come to life. A variety of bars, pubs, discotheques and a casino may be found, whether it’s in the centre of town or near the harbour.
Shoppers will have a blast with the many commercial centres, brand shops, as well as traditional embroidery and souvenir establishments in the area. Visiting the Lavradores Market is also a must for its dynamic, colourful and unique atmosphere.
