Holidays to Funchal
While the beaches are gorgeous swathes of golden sand lapped by sparkling tides, the rest of Funchal is pretty stunning too. Tear yourself away from the shore and head inwards, where gardens, forests, and craggy mountains pepper the city with spectacular places to spend an afternoon gently taking in the sights, sounds, and aromas. Even the city streets are majestic: street art is a huge deal here, and certain roads are decorated in grassroots graffiti to give you a little boost at each turn.
During your Funchal holiday, it’s worth getting to know the area’s historical quirks and traditions. One of the best ways to do this is through the different ways locals take their food. From simple little snack bars to lavish hill-top restaurants, the culinary world is as varied and exciting as the city itself. Ask the inhabitants where to find the best pastries, the strongest liquors, and the freshest fruit: you won’t regret seeking out what they recommend. If there’s anything better than spending an evening in a rough-and-ready café bar sipping poncha and nibbling pastel de nata, we’re yet to figure it out.
