Ribeira Brava holidays take you to a delightful town on Madeira's southern coast. Surrounded by fertile, terraced hills, it is a peaceful resort offering respite from busy lives. Madeira is not noted for its beaches as its craggy cliffs generally drop straight into the sea. However, realising the attraction of somewhere to sunbathe by the sea, a beach was constructed. Made of pebbles, it has a breakwater to protect it from the Atlantic waves. This provides save bathing within the enclosure and there is also a swimming pool for younger children. The clarity of the water and the variety of marine life, offer perfect conditions for diving and snorkelling. Deep sea fishing and sailing are also popular. You'll find tennis courts and a golf course in the area. Madeira is a great place for walkers as the levadas, a system of irrigation channels, provide trails to otherwise inaccessable parts of the island. You can enjoy a magnificent landscape with stunning views.
Ribeira Brava has a range of small hotels, many of which are privately owned. Standards are high and service is excellent. The town has many fine restaurants supplying a diverse menu that caters for all. As you'd expect, fish features prominently and never disappoints. Wines and beers are inexpensive. Madeira is noted for its air of relaxation that continues on into the evening. Nightlife is very low key and venues close fairly early, although hours are extended slightly at the weekend. Ribeira Brava has a plentiful supply of shops where you can purchase holiday essentials as well as gifts and souvenirs. If a greater choice is required, take the bus to neighbouring Funchal. Embroidered cloths, leather goods, ceramics and carvings are popular purchases.
As there are no extremes of temperature on Madeira, low cost Ribeira Brava holidays can be taken at any time of year. Temperatures reach thirty in the height of the summer season. Several budget airlines fly direct from regional airports to Funchal. You can check on the Cheekytrip website to see if there are holidays from your local airport.
