  • Great place. Great view, cable car safe and modern world in summer (predictable), restaurant OK but overwhelmed (40 min to take the order, served 1 hour after we arrived). However, worth the trip.

  • Idyllic place on the coast, huge cliffs behind you, dark-blue ocean in front, children jumping off the jetty into the sea and lovely drinks and friendly staff at the restaurant/cafe. Orchard is fantastic: grapes and other tropical fruit. But don't pick it!
  • Great place to spend a day! 10€ for the cable car, only to go and have luch it's pricy ...
  • If you can stomach the trip in the cable car this is a place like no other. Crystal blue seas, calm areas to rest, great restaurant and ice cold beer. A little bit of heaven.
  • Expensive cable car but lovely place, fantastic restaurant, transparent water, jetsky renting... Don't miss it but attention, last cable back is at 19:00!!
  • Very nice trip. With 10 € a ticket certainly not cheap, but worth the visit. Pretty calm and quiet down at the floor of the lift. Small beach. Nice restaurant with good food.

Where to stay in Funchal

Funchal's array of accommodation presents an interesting conundrum, as many of the upscale hotels and budget options lie outside the city center. If you opt to stay there, you'll need transportation in order to best explore the city. Luxury hotels touting outdoor pools, spas, exclusive restaurants, and other amenities certainly dazzle with their locations along the coast.
