Are we related? LOL My dad came from Madeira Island when he was 17 years old. I have a lot of relatives on the island. I was just wondering. My dad is from Camacha, but I also have relatives in Santa Cruz. My dad's last name is Gonçalves. I was just there in May of 2008. It's so pretty there. I would love to go back for New Year's eve, Madeira Island has the best fireworks display.

Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
I was just there a couple weeks ago, on the Splendor, and what an unexpected surprise it was. It truly is a secret gem - not only a beautiful island, but certainly it's population is one of the most friendly, kind and caring people of any port I've seen.

Tips for Funchal Madeira
Hello hello.

I'm on a TA to Barcelona, stopping one day in Funchal.

Does anyone have any tips for what to do, where to go, how to get there from the cruise ship port in Funchal? I was hoping to see the city without doing a tour (trying to save $$ getting to Europe!), so I don't want to get too far away from the boat either.

Any suggestions or recommendations?
