Praia Formosa beach, Madeira

Where better to have a beer on holiday?

Below Vila Formosa is Praia Formosa beach (take the gate by the pool which leads to the steps).


There are four cafes along the beach front, my favourite is the last one, Praia Formosa cafe with the white and blue stripes. It is open from early morning through to the evening and offers great value for money. I recently had lunch for less than 10 Euros!

The standard of food is excellent and the setting can't be beaten. If you need a walk after lunch, the promenade leads all the way to Camara de Lobos, a beautiful fishing village with yet more bars and cafes.

Situated just 4km outside of Funchal town centre, this holiday rental is perfectly located for eating out, shopping, and sight seeing. Afterwards, return to breathtaking views and tranquility.
