Madeira - Jardim do Mar - Lighthouse - Funchall | twoplustwocrew

We were staying at the ultra modern Saccharum hotel in Calheta Madeira and exploring the island.

Trip out today to the beautiful little seaside village of Jardim do mar then on to the Ponta do Pargo lighthouse, stunning views and the working lighthouse is open to the public explore, thanks to the keeper who showed us round including a tour to the top to see the fantastic brass and crystal light. Tried to head from there to do another Levada walk but ended up in Funchal so had an explore there instead... Andrew found food and Sam found Zara!

Our first time in Madeira... loved it hopefully heading back soon!  Any suggestions/questions please leave a comment below.

Our tour of the Saccharum Hotel Resort & Spa in Calheta Madeira. This new hotel is pretty designer cool, lots of moody lighting, use different textures and industrial decor from the old sugarcane(saccharum) factory that was on this site. We travelled without the kids as they were both off skiing with school but we'de love to bring them back here, Lots of facilities, 5 pools, spa etc and it's own sheltered little beach.It's about 45 mins from Funchal so really need a car but if you want to explore. We did some fantastic walks and had fun exploring the specatacular coastal scenery.
