Their stalls sell keenly priced cut flowers and bulbs tubs or delicate orchid blooms might tempt you to buy a souvenir of the island’s horticultural richness.

    Câmara de Lobos

    It is one of the island’s most atmospheric fishing villages. The village was named after monk seals which frequent visitors to the harbour. The centre of the village, with its whitewashed houses, shops and bar where you can taste the local drink poncha, remains instantly likeable. The stony beach is filled with colourful beached fishing boats. Winston Churchill choose this village to paint in 1949.

    Monte Toboggan Ride

    The Monte Toboggan involves sliding in a wicker basket mounted on wooden runners. It covers the 2 km (1.24 miles) descent from Monte to Funchal in 10 minutes. The trip is enjoyed by thousands every year, drawn by the exhilarating experience of traveling at speed down a public highway on a wooden sled. Ernest Hemingway once described it as “exhilarating.” A cushioned seat softens the ride, with passengers in the safe hands of toboggan drivers, who steer from the rear using their rubber-soled boots as brakes. Madeiran Tobogganing, invented as a form of transportation in 1850, offers a unique and thrilling way to experience the island.
