          I don't really know but there are many trips involving boats & I'd guess snorkelling would be a popular activity.

          Is there a sandy beach nearby the hotel?

          Depends on what you mean with "nearby". Within walking distance? No. The closest (by car) would be Paira de Machico. Otherwise you have to head to Porto Santo by ferry (from Funchal).

          Can I have any opinions on if there is anywhere to walk in the evening? We generally like to have a stroll somewhere after dinner. Not looking for nightlife particularly but concerned there is no where to wander to. Many thanks

          You will not find any night life, there are a couple of small local bars and restaurant's. There is a waterfront path that goes in both direction from the hotel, one to a water park and the other towards the airport.
