Visit Madeira

Imagine a true natural paradise, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and in the centre, between Europe and the Americas. The islands of Madeira and Porto Santo, along with the rest of the archipelago, are this paradise, with two thirds of the land protected.

A perennial favourite with Silver Travellers. Madeira’s climate is mild all year round, which makes Madeira an ideal location for outdoor events and activities.

The famous festivals, celebrating the Atlantic, the Flowers, Columbus, and the New Year fireworks, are excellent times to visit the island if you enjoy a spectacle and a lively holiday.

Why Travel To Madeira?

The tranquillity of the islands allows for a genuine sense of well-being, away from day to day stresses. There are spas and thalassotherapy to restore the mind and body, in the peaceful, luxuriant surroundings of this very special island.

Madeira pioneered the development of a good practices document to deal with Covid-19. These measures will provide comfort to those who travel, and are ultimately for the wellbeing of all.
