Begin by visiting the lofty Pico dos Barcelos Viewpoint. From up here – 1,200 feet above sea level – admire stunning panoramic views across the sweeping Funchal Bay, the city area and out to the Desertas Islands in the deep-blue Atlantic.

Stroll through the semi-tropical gardens at Reid’s Palace Hotel, a famous spot on Madeira set in 10 lush acres on a headland overlooking the Bay. Admire the hanging vines and stunning displays of geraniums, hibiscus and salvias before you settle down for a charming tea.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere as you’re served a selection of delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes along with a refreshing cup of tea – bliss!
