It’s no surprise that families from all over Portugal love to celebrate the New Year in Funchal.
Completely immerse yourselves in the Madeiran party atmosphere as the week-long celebrations build up to midnight on the 31st. The entire island descends on the capital Funchal for the big event – families and friends gather on every rooftop and balcony, as Funchal bay fills with cruise ships bringing travellers from around the world to enjoy the festivities. On the stroke of twelve, the ships sound their sirens and every church bell rings out as the epic firework display begins.
We’ve suggested spending the New Year in Funchal but it’s easy to extend your stay if you’d like to spend Christmas and New Year on the island – just fill in one of our Enquiry forms and we’ll give you a call to chat through the possibilities.
