The best road for promenading in Funchal and watching the world and the boats go by and possibly enjoying a drink.

Avenida do Mar (or Ocean Avenue), is the place to walk in relax mode. From Av. do Mar, you can see on your left side (when walking from CR7 Hotel into Teleférico), all the old part of the city, with lots of emblematic old buildings,...More

Interesting place for walk and to observe the nautical activities and people just generally relaxing. Various cafes and information kiosks plus local craft market on some days. Cable car station and main bus terminus.

Here you can pass Funchal along the sea from west to east. Watch all the boats and tourists. Catch most of the buses.

With refreshments available and views of the water this is a nice walk. Expect to be approached by the people selling tours and the occasional hawker of tourist trinkets.

You see lots of people walking down the marina getting off the cruise ships......but you can buy your bus tickets here and also the sightseeing bus...if you cross the road you can get buses to the Lido and other interesting place....

We used this most days to get to where we wanted to go, most of the attractions can be accessed from here, either by foot or bus or cable car.
