Where RYAN O’SHAUGHNESSY, from IRELAND, filmed his Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Postcard
The 11km long and 6km wide Island of the Archipelago of Madeira, in the Atlantic Ocean, with its 9km-long beach is irresistible.
HOW TO GET THERE?
Either by ferry from Madeira Island or by plane. It’s a fifteen-minute flight from Funchal and during the summer season you may also find direct flights from Lisbon, Porto and some larger European airports, like London Gatwick.
WHAT TO DO?
With nice weather all year, its wonderful 9km beach is the main attraction. But golf, diving, trekking or horse-back riding are some of the activities you can do in the Island.
WHAT NOT TO MISS?
Filipa Moniz, daughter of the founder of Porto Santo, was married to Christopher Columbus. The house reputedly once occupied by him is now a museum and shows in diagrams the journeys of the explorer, copies of maps from the 15th and 16th centuries and a model of one of his boats.
