Things to do in Madeira

Ponta do Sol is considered by many to be the perfect representation of traditional Madeira, with its stunning natural beauty and abundant sunshine. Historically, Ponta do Sol was an influential sugar cane port; its name derives from the reflection of the sun on the polished rock of the port at dawn.

If you’re an outdoors enthusiast, you will be delighted with Ponta do Sol; plan a bike ride through the town’s historic streets, or stroll in the mountains just beyond. There are two golf courses within an hour’s drive of the hotel as well. Local boat tours offer everything from underwater fishing to diving, and the gorgeous white beaches of Porto Santo beckon. Other attractions include horseback riding, canoeing, helicopter tours, and much more.
