One of the highlights of this itinerary is mountainous Funchal. As you explore, notice the street mosaics created from volcanic rock and the artistic doorways. It’s like an open-air museum. Take a cable car up to Monte Palace where you’ll find colorful gardens and gorgeous views. Teide National Park in Santa Cruz also provides amazing vistas, especially from Mount Teide, the highest point in Spain. Its lunar-like landscapes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The last port of call is Tortola and its white-sand beaches, azure water and lush green mountains. For a relaxing day, put your toes in the sand at remote Long Bay Beach. For something unique, take a boat ride to Virgin Gorda and explore the Baths, a beach where piles of granite boulders have created grottos that you can swim through. It’s a natural attraction like no other.
