Official Spotting Locations

Viewing Terrace

On the top floor, there is a viewing terrace, with views over the whole apron. Photos of arriving and departing aircraft can also be taken from here.

Other Spotting Locations

Rua Santa Catarina

Rua Santa Catarina is a street about 100 meters away from the runway and about 50 meters higher than the runway. The best place for Inbound traffic is at the beginning of the road. Park your car at the first possible place on the right side. Then go about 50 meters downhill where you will see a concrete box (whatever it may be). You can climb and stand on this box and get very close pictures of landing planes. Another possibility is on the opposite side of the road, where you will find a bar, climb up the hill and get planes still in the air (and sometimes see the fear in the face of the pilot, because Funchal is not easy to land!) while standing on the concrete box you get them touching the runway.
