Leaving the pier you will proceed towards Pico dos Barcelos, where you can see distant Funchal and the surrounding villages scattered over the green slopes. From here you will be driven to Camara de Lobos, a well-known fishing village used by Sir Winston Churchill to create beautiful island paintings. You will have a photo stop at Pico da Torre Viewpoint, from where you will see its lovely, quaint setting of red-tile roofed houses clustered on the rocky point and the brightly painted fishing boats anchored in the harbour.

Your tour will then proceed to Cabo Girão, the highest sea cliff in Europe and the second highest in the world. Soaring 1,900 feet, its etched face tells the tale of its volcanic origins. From this impressive promontory, you will have breath-taking views along the island’s southern coast. Before returning to your ship you will have some free time to stroll in the charming city of Funchal.
