Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your question which deserved our best attention.

The access to the sea is at Pestana Carlton Madeira and it's only 500m away, 2 minutes walk. You have to take our swimming pool towels and your Hotel key card.

Kindest regards from the sunny Madeira Island

Most beaches are stony or black sand - check out my review of Praia Formosa. There are a couple of beaches with imported sand near the airport - Caniço is one, can't recall the other. But if you are looking for a beach holiday, you are probably in the wrong place

N0 beaches to speak of on Madeira - typically, one is looking at a boulder-strewn coastline. Dotted around, there are some man-made sandy patches but these are limited in size and number. Other than the hotel pool, your only escape to other water based activity is the Lido - approx. 30 minutes walk. The one and only water park is a taxi ride out of Funchal, in the direction of the airport. This park only operates peak season.

There are some pebbly beaches nearby, but most people use the public lidos for sunbathing and swimming. I think the nicer beaches are on the other side of the island .

If you are looking for a beach holiday Madeira is not really for you. All the hotels have lovely pools and surroundings and the scenery is beautiful.

No afraid not, there are not really any beaches within walking distance. You can access the sea via a lift in the Pestana Carlton. The pestana Carlton is about a 10 minute walk from the pestana garden hotel, from the Carlton you can take a lift down the cliff to a small sea pool with stairs into the sea but no beach. All guests of the village garden have access to the facilities at the Carlton. Hope that helps.
