Explore the natural wonders of Funchal without having to do hours of research by going on this action-packed jeep trip. See vineyards and volcanic caves at São Vicente, get the chance to swim in natural pools at Port Moniz, and access incredible views from Cabo Girao. The tour is a great way to get off the beaten track and find sights of outstanding beauty that you might not discover alone.

It is a small garden, full of trees and flowers that you will not miss during your walk to the city center. As every garden in Funchal, this one is also a well preserved, clean, with a lot of benches to sit and relax under the shade of the trees

We wandered through the Municipal Gardens after a lot of walking round Funchal. Very compact and well maintained, but sadly in February, not a lot of colour.

Congratulations to the garden team for making an interesting municipal garden with enough colourful and unusual plantings to be worth a visit. There is a particularly nice café in the gardens which is a great place to enjoy the relaxation and tranquility of the gardens. Look out for the interesting Kapok trees - fluffy!

These small gardens are right in the centre of town. Our apartment overlooked the park so we saw it every day at various times and walked through it many times. There are a variety of plants and trees from around the world and many benches to sit on and watch the world go by. There is a duck pond and a fountain as well. There is a outdoor cafe in one corner selling various drinks and snacks which I used a couple of times. I paid 2 euros for coffee. The park is well kept and I saw gardeners and cleaners there every day keeping it tidy. The only downside is that there are a number of homeless men sleeping/living there and they can be quite loud at times when they argue with each other. Although I never saw them hassle any other visitors to the park I never went in there at night even though its well lit. (Does any sensible person go into parks at night these days?)
