Madeira’s Top Resorts
Jet2Flights@ 10:37 AM
With its warm and sunny climate, breathtaking scenery, charming fishing villages and dramatic coastlines, Madeira is a deceptively small island, just 35 miles long and 13 miles wide. Nicknamed ‘the floating garden’, there’s no shortage of resorts to choose from when booking your cheap flight to Madeira at Jet2.com.
The island’s capital is one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal. There is so much to see and do here. Funchal has managed to retain a balance between old and new. The old town is packed with family-run tavernas serving up the island’s signature dishes; while the marina is lined with modern cafés serving up frothy mochachinos.
Monte is the most popular tourist attraction outside the capital and it’s easy to see why with its breathtaking mountain views looking over Funchal’s bay. If you’re feeling brave, take the famous wicker basket ride down to Funchal, which was built in 1850 as a form of transportation.
Machico is Madeira’s oldest town and second most populated on the island. Situated close to the Airport, the beautiful bay of Machico has a wonderful pebbled beach. For breathtaking views, visit Pico do Facho, a popular lookout point where torches were lit to warn the city of approaching Pirates.
