About Madeira

The sea is also pleasantly warm, with average temperatures between 18° and 22º C. As for rainfall, the average annual value is higher on the north coast than the south, increasing with altitude. The rainy months are mainly October to March.

Madeira is one of the autonomous regions of Portugal. Just 57 km long and 22 km wide, it has a population of 270,000. There are mountains, forest parks, beaches, museums, monuments, marinas and recreational activities by the score.

Relax and enjoy the local traditions and regional products made by these uncomplicated and welcoming people (you’ve only truly been to Madeira if you’ve tasted the famous Bolo do Caco). The island has already earned numerous national and international awards, and is in the Guinness Book of World Records for its famous New Year spectacle.

One of the most common practices among tourists is renting a car to explore the corners of the island in a comfortable and relaxed way. Madeira’s geography and road system combine to make this an enjoyable experience.

With so much to see, we recommend the museum which serves as tribute to the footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, the wine museum (Blandy's Wine Lodge), the Museum of Embroidery and Crafts, festivals like the Flower Festival, and local festivities, often in honor of popular saints).

Nature lovers will be busy too: we suggest the Botanical Garden, the breathtaking viewpoints, the small waterfalls you can drive under, a boat trip to see dolphins and whales, a visit to the heart of Santana with its typical houses, and a swim in the natural pools.

If you like excitement, why not try the cable cars and the wicker basket ride?

When you make a stop, don´t forget to taste local delicacies such as Madeira wine, sweet potatoes, delicious cake and honey gems.

Why not extend your holiday memories by purchasing items made by skilled local workers, like embroidery, tapestries, wickerwork and other souvenirs?

We look forward to receiving your booking!
