When you book a last-minute break to Madeira, you can park yourself anywhere from swish Funchal to pint-sized Calheta.

Stylish Funchal and Canico de Baixo

Island capital Funchal is a mash-up of a traditional old town, chic new marina and high-end boutiques. And it’s all overlooked by the mountaintop village of Monte. You can zip up there on a cable car and whizz back down on a traditional toboggan. Nearby Canico de Baixo cranks down the tempo a notch. The hotels are just as stylish, though, complete with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Beach resorts Santa Cruz and Calheta

Santa Cruz pairs fishing village charm with great beach resort credentials. Brightly painted boats bookend a beach stocked with sunloungers, parasols and family-run restaurants. Plus, a ten-minute mooch along the prom takes you to a petite waterpark. Calheta, meanwhile, is a bit of a beach resort in the making. It’s got all the essentials, though — including a rare sandy beach.
