Also, Madeira’s traditional bread with garlic butter (called Bolo do Caco c/ Manteiga d’Alho) is a nice treat. Try the Madeira wine they are famous for and the poncha liquor made from various things. We liked the passion fruit rum and honey version.
|Toboggan Ride - Madeira|
|Beautiful Shoreline - Madeira|
Drivers with nice cars are available offering worthwhile tours of Madeira that take you to beautiful viewpoints high in the hills that overlook the picturesque shorelines and terraced hillsides (see photos). Depending on your preferences, the tour can also take you to do the toboggan ride or the Botanical Garden. A fun stop is also the small fishing village of Camara del Lobos (see photo).
As our cruise ship slowly left the beautiful city of Funchal, small dolphins playfully jumped the waves made by our ship.
