Beaches and pools
Black of sand and warm of water, Funchal's Praia Formosa is made up of three small sandy beaches and a large pebble beach. The city also has several outdoor swimming pool complexes, including the Lido, whose seawater pools are refilled daily, and Ponta Gorda, which has two adult pools and a children's pool. Both complexes have bars and restaurants and access to the sea itself. The Lido and Praia Formosa are linked by a palm-tree-lined promenade with lovely views of the sea. Watersports and outdoor activities are popular here – you can go swimming with dolphins, whale-watching, diving, surfing or paragliding, take a boat trip or just enjoy long walks.
Funchal's Botanical Gardens have more than 2,000 plants, including indigenous plants from Madeira and other Atlantic islands and trees from places around the world, from the Himalayas to the tropics. There are also tropical fruit trees, sugar cane, medicinal plants and some exotic and rare birds, including cockatoos, Australian parakeets and dwarf parrots. Attractions at the Monte Palace Tropical Gardens include two Oriental gardens with Buddhist sculptures and Japanese lanterns, and wildlife including koi carp, swans and peacocks. The gardens are also home to a collection of tiles from palaces, churches and private houses from across the former Portuguese empire. Quinta Magnolia is a beautiful park filled with thousands of colourful flowers. It also has an outdoor pool, tennis and squash courts, a jogging circuit, a play area and a café.
Funchal's abundance of museums includes the Madeira Story Centre and the City Museum, where you can discover the history of the island and the city, and the Contemporary Art Museum.

The museum contains 10,000 objects from across the globe, including books, ceramics, paintings and bronzes.
