Hotel Melia Madeira Mare, Funchal Lido seafront
GPS Coordinates: Latitude 32.637401 Longitude -16.934363
Funchal is a lively city on the South coast of Madeira, small in population but punctuated with many open and spacious parks, gardens and leisure areas.
The Meliã Madeira Mare Hotel is located in the sunniest and most sought after area right on the waterfront by the promenade, a lovely pedestrian boulevard starting right next to the hotel with the garden by the Lido Pools and stretching along the coast to Praia Formosa, the largest natural beach in Madeira. Along the palm lined promenade discover and learn about the many exotic flowers you will find here any time of the year.
When in Rome… The Lido area where the hotel is located has a wide choice of excellent restaurants where you can try the local specialties; Black Scabbard fish, ‘espetada’ (a huge skewer of beef), passion fruit desserts and ‘poncha’ a drink known to cure a cold (allegedly) – whether this is related or not to the firewater it is made with or not is a matter for debate.
Everything for a wonderful holiday is right at hand close to the Meliã Madeira Mare Hotel, enjoy!
