Hello, we are spending a week in Funchal at the beginning of June and I wondered if anyone could recommend things to do with a 2.5 yo? We've been there before but he was only 9m then so didn't really need much entertaining! We'll be staying in a timeshare with swimming pool etc so we will have that too.

You could go up in the cable cars to the Botanical gardens, but really, Funchal doesn't seem to have a lot for small DC. Of course it may be different now, I was there a few years ago.

I went to Maderia for my honeymoon. There is bog all to do for anyone, young or old. But we were on our honeymoon so not an issue IYSWIM blush.

Ah well - looks like we will be spending lots of time in the pool then! Thanks both

Hmm yes either pool or walk to park at bottom of hill for swings and ice cream smile. My two enjoyed the cable car up to Monte and the birds in the presidents garden.

H'mm. I am looking for a holiday destination that is warm, peaceful, and has bog all to do but sit beside the pool and the sea. And eat and drink well, obv.

No night life, and preferably between 20 and 27 degrees.

Is Madeira my answer??

Madeira the holiday destination of the newly weds and nearly deads. The market is quite fun to visit, but apart from that lots of time in the pool.
