Customer Reviews for Cabo Girao, Camara Fishing Village & Reid's

Cabo Girao, Camara Fishing Village & Reid's

Discover both ‘sides’ of Madeira on this island that is distinctly Portuguese but has a noticeable English accent. You'll begin with a drive along the island's west coast to Cabo Girão—the highest sea cliff in Europe and the second-highest in the world at 1,902 feet. There are stunning views out over Funchal and to the distant horizon. Look for the inhospitable terraces that hug the side of the cliff and are farmed even today, although the laws of gravity would suggest otherwise. Next you'll stop at Câmara de Lobos, a delightfully picturesque village that was painted by Winston Churchill during his stay in Madeira. Today, Lobos is a thriving fishing center, and the quaint houses around its small bay belong to many of the island's fishermen. These are some of the oldest dwellings on the island. End your tour with a chance to relax over afternoon tea at Reid’s Palace Hotel. This Madeira institution is famous for its lovely gardens and grounds, as well as for its association with the Funchal Botanic Garden—the Reid family sold to the government the land on which the legendary gardens are located. Refreshments served will include tea or coffee, finger sandwiches, scones and cakes. Notes:The dress code at Reid’s Palace Hotel is smart casual (no jeans, shorts or sports shoes).

This was truly a lovely and relaxing way to tour the stunningly beautiful landscape of Madeira topped off by a truly elegant High Tea at the Reid's Hotel. The gardens around the Reid's Hotel are truly special.
