In fact, you don’t have to travel a long way to find the ideal holiday destination. There are a thousand and one reasons for visiting Madeira! In addition to its stunning scenery and luxuriant mountains, this archipelago also includes a mild climate all year round, a warm welcome and peace, safety and security among its charms. To really get to know Madeira, climb to the top of a mountain and enjoy fantastic, breathtaking views or follow the trails and paths in the Laurissilva Forest along more than 1,400 km of levadas in a unique encounter with the island’s soul. Feel the energy flowing from the cosmopolitan ambiance of Funchal’s streets and buy some souvenirs, like the famous embroidery, Madeira wine or wickerwork.
Try taking a tour around the island, stopping off on the way to admire the landscape or enjoy a traditional delicacy. For more energetic visitors there is scuba-diving, surfing, windsurfing or jet-skiing. Romantics may prefer a wonderful sailboat trip along the coast to enjoy the sunset. But to make this your dream holiday, you really must spend some time on the paradisiacal island of Porto Santo 40 km from Madeira, only 15 minutes by plane or 2h30 on the ferry. The “golden island” is blessed with 9 km of fine, unpolluted sand washed by a clear, calm sea - all you need for a perfect stay.
