Since the resort opened, this space has become a wonderful garden with over 500 species, subspecies and plants, with some of these plants originating from as far away as Australia, New Zealand and the African continent.
Different fruit trees can also be found where the forms, smells and flavours of their fruits take us to other latitudes, examples are the banana, sugar apple, avocado, starfruit among many others...
The majority of plants grow extraordinarily thanks to the subtropical climate, the fertility of the soil and the constant care and attention from our gardening team. Alongside the flowers and the trees are various endemic plants in the gardens such as the Madeira Geranium, dragon-tree, or the Pride of Madeira, all of them duly identified by origin, family, region and common name. Make the most of discovering a new corner with aromatic and medicinal herbs as well as the “orchidea Garden”, an area dedicated to the most varied species of these marvellous flowers.

For Porto Mare it is a matter of pride to achieve guest’s expectations. This position has fostered significant loyalty which distinguishes us and has led to a host of awards from tourist operators, online travel agents, or travel audit websites. Thank you!
Situated in the Atlantic Ocean and with a mild climate, Madeira Island is one of the oldest and most prestigious tourist destinations in Europe. With an extensive natural reserve, the most famous is the prehistoric and exuberant Laurissilva (laurel) forest, which has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the World Natural Heritage.
Nature, the temperate climate, the unique waterfalls, the local traditions, the culture, the cuisine, water and mountain sports, immense gardens and flowers, popular festivals, embroidery and Madeira wine, and the cosmopolitan city of Funchal make Madeira a multi-faceted destination.
