Swimming in Funchal

Although Funchal offers a very pleasant weather, it is not that ideal for a beach vacation as you might thought. There are only two sandy beaches in Funchal, others are gravel or there are cliffs. However, almost all the hotels have their own outdoor pools. You can also visit public swimming pools offering not only fresh water, but also a pool with a salty sea water. In case, that you wish to experience true beach holidays, you can visit the island of Santo Ponto, that is located only about 40 km north of Madeira. In Funchal you can also dive - however please note that Madeira is actually of a volcanic origin, so there is black sand in the ocean and therefore there is not a good visibility. However, if you enjoy watching whales or dolphins or fancy a kayak ride down the river, you've come to the right place.
