Where to stay in Madeira?
Best hotels in Madeira
A large number of the hotels and accommodations that the island offers are in Funchal ,the main city of Madeira. Most of the inhabitants live along the south coast of the island; the climate on the north coast can be wetter but it offers beautiful landscapes that should not be missed.
Staying in Funchal is therefore a good choice to discover the island as tours and activities start from that place. If you want to spend the night in nature you will find many rural accommodation all over the island. Often called "Quinta" these are old farms converted into tourist accommodation. One of the best hotels on the island is probably the Quinta do Furao located in Santana on the north coast of Madeira.
If you have the opportunity a short stay in Porto Santo, the other inhabited island of the Madeira Archipelago, may be a good choice. The island is not very big but it has a beautiful sandy beach and a golf course open all year round; the hotel Pestana Porto Santo Beach is ideally located on the beach. The island is connected daily by ferry from Funchal.
