Barreirinha lido closed

Barreirinha LidoThe Diario reports that the charmingly old-fashioned bathing complex at Barreirinha, to the east of the Old Town, and the nearby São Tiago beach next to the fort will be closed from May 21st, due to Frente MarFunchal, the company that manages the majority of seafront facilities around Funchal, undertaking various improvements and restorations. This includes work on the solarium and re-painting of infrastructures damaged by the storms that hit the south coast of the island at the end of February and beginning of March this year.
