Explore the stunning coastlines and countryside of this picturesque island.

Sit back as your panoramic drive heads along the rugged west coast and through the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos – so pretty it was painted by Sir Winston Churchill.

Weave through the lush eucalyptus forests until you reach the Cabo Girão Viewpoint. Behold the spellbinding scenes from the highest cape in Europe, which stands 1,900 feet above the sparkling Atlantic. 

At Pico dos Barcelos Viewpoint, admire stunning panoramas across the sweeping Funchal Bay, the city area and out to the Desertas Islands. Then head to Pico do Serrado to photograph the vistas of Madeira’s highest peaks and the remote village of Curral das Freiras – once a nuns’ haven from pirate raids.

Before you return to your ship, visit a popular hotel in Eira do Serrado. Relax and enjoy a slice of delicious homemade cake along with a hot drink or a glass of the famous Madeira wine.
