Photographer's Note

The Port of Funchal

"The Port of Funchal is situated in a magnificent bay framed by the clear blue of the sea, the city of Funchal and the green of the mountains of Madeira Island. Situated at 15 minutes on foot from the city centre, the Port of Funchal is also the departure point for the discovery of the Island of Madeira.
Funchal is its capital city and in the 741 square kilometres of the Island of Madeira you will have lots to discover. With 2/3 of its territory considered protected forest area, Madeira is a green jewel in the Atlantic Ocean. Its Laurissilva forest is recognised by the UN as a World Heritage Site.
The beauty of its coastline is unquestionable. The clear blue of the sea in contrast to its precipitous coastline is appreciated by thousands of tourists every year.
Come and live this experience too. The Port of Funchal and Madeira Island welcome your holidays."
