Pearl of the Atlantic

PT-FNC-LEAD-ISTOCK.

Escape to the Portuguese island idyll of Madeira, where some of Europe’s most spectacular scenery awaits. Fly with British Airways to the cosmopolitan capital, Funchal, and discover the myriad charms of this stunning destination.

An awe-inspiring landscape of emerald green-cloaked peaks and valleys meeting the azure Atlantic greet you as you fly into Funchal. Cradled within a lush natural amphitheatre on Madeira’s sun-soaked south coast, the capital city is a paradise for outdoor activities by day. By night, it awakens to the beats from buzzing bars and clubs that stay open until dawn. A year-round balmy climate invites sun-bathers to recline on Funchal’s volcanic sandy shores. While the crystal clear ocean and child-friendly pool complexes provide abundant cooling off opportunities. Stroll through eucalyptus-scented mountain forests or gardens overflowing with subtropical flowers. Swim with dolphins and go whale-watching. Or play golf in serene surroundings. Book your Funchal flights and get ready to experience magnificent Madeira.
