Awesome overhead shot of the beach in this post: http://www.infobarrel.com/Most_Unusual_Beache...

Thinking of coming to Funchal for vacation too. Gotta see the unusual airport too.

This beach is in Calheta. Check the HUUUUGE green cliffs in the area. Drive to the neighbouring towns, some of them tubular waves surfing areas, pass through looong tunnels, then take the road up through the cliff.
It's simply beautiful!

About the airport, if you have a car, drive through the highway under the runway.

I drove under the motorway but I did not see sports courts, only concrete piers and stones bellow reclaiming the sea.
