Welcome to Madeira
Welcome to this site for visitors to Madeira. I hope it helps you to find places of interest on the island and to visit them. For general information on transport, see Getting Around and for what you need to know before you set out on foot, see Walking . Information on specific activities and destinations can be found in the menu. The main focus is on places you can visit in a day trip from Funchal, but we'll also look at some further-flung options if you're a repeat visitor or if you're staying for some time. NOTE: The official tourism website has been reorganised. For up-to-date information on the status of the official walking routes, check the page [you can change the language at the top] provided by the Institute for Forests and the Conservation of Nature ( IFCN ).
