Okulus has wooden haphazard stairs down to the beach below, the adventurous Praia do Toco, for soul-enhancing year-round swimming.

MADEIRA ISLAND
This is Portugal´s picturesque holiday island with a bawdy sense of fun, an event loving island that can be enjoyed year-round due to the amazing climate. For the past months it has become a covid-haven, managing the pandemic in exemplary efficiency. Bike-riding, fishing, surf & paddle lessons, walks, jumping in the ocean and exploring the historic city and its gardens are just some of the things to do. Get back to nature with dolphin boat trips or mountain treks in pre-historic forests, with over two thirds of the Island a protected reserve you are spoilt for choice on how you want to engage with the natural world.

Located on Rua Lazareto, Funchal, 2 minute walk to the old town restaurants, beach, Funchal market, cafés and shops.
