Hi,You all were so helpful when I recently posted a question about Madeira vs. Azores. So I am back with another question. I have pretty much decided to take the family to Madeira this summer (July or early August). But I am not sure where to stay. We'd like easy access to a nice beach (swimming and water sports). Some would like to play golf a couple of days. We want to eat out for dinner, so nearby restaurants are a plus. (We could take bus/shuttle if need be). I know that Funchal has more activity/things "happening"--but I get the impression that the beaches there are not so good. Maybe stay near Funchal and take public transportation to/from beach during the day on days we'd like to go to the beach? (We won't want to be at the beach every day, but probably 2 beach days.) Or stay in beach area and go back and forth to Funchal by public transportation? Any specific hotels you can recommend??..... I'd appreciate any advice!
