“Near the Harbour”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very convenient avenue for those who visit Funchal! Near the cruise terminal, it's in the town center and full of restaurants and shops! Beautiful views from there to the top of the town of Funchal!

“Construction closed the promenade.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Avenida do mar was closed and boarded up do to reconstruction of the waterfront areas and the beach. You were really not able to see much as the construction walls were in place and tractors and cranes were the order of the day.

“Nothing to Write Home About”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Pleasant enough stroll, very little atmosphere, went during the day, beggars and restaurant staff plying for trade a bit put offing. In the evening extremly quiet. True no Starbucks but there is a Big Macs and a Pizza Hut.

“You can't miss it”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The main road next to the sea in Funchal. Although there is currently massive construction work going on, it will be a greatly improved marina when it is complete. It has a nice promenade for a stroll and clean toilets if you need them.

“Main road for picking up buses and coaches.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This road is where all bus services can be picked up and where all buses finish. Ticket kiosks and transport help is plentiful. Currently the side of the road adjacent to the sea is a massive building site where flood defence measures and storm repairs are being carried out. Large Lorries and bulldozers seem to work around the clock so it is not really somewher to stay too long.
