DESTINATION AND LOCATION
Madeira is known worldwide for its
New Year's celebrations. If you prefer to come in June, you can watch the equally magnificent fireworks for the
Festival do Atlântico. If you choose April–May, it is the renowned
Festa da Flor, with flower carpets, expositions, shows and the main attraction—the colourful parade, which brings much joy to the island.
You can spend all of your pent-up energy on hikes along fantastic
paths and trails, or you can release it taking brisk swims in the middle of the Atlantic. If you go out in
search of whales or dolphins, on one of the many boat trips, you will likely stop at one of several coves and dive straight into the contrasting greens and blues of this breathtaking island.
Discover the picturesque
Santana area and the incredible natural pools of
Porto Moniz, of unique natural beauty. In the
Curral das Freiras, it is the island’s interior that reveals all the splendour of Madeira and the impressive forest views.
The hotel is about 22 km from the
Madeira International Airport and only
10 minutes away from the centre of Funchal, where you can take a cable car to the top of the Igreja do Monte, with fabulous gardens and incredible views.
The Pestana Grand is a Premium Ocean Resort with 177 rooms, 11 suites and one master suite.
