Madeira island

Madeira’s excellent climate is perfect for all sorts of activities. Both Madeira and Porto Santo are Ideal for golf all year round, and their exceptionally beautiful scenery was the reason why both islands constructed golf courses, two in Madeira and one in Porto Santo.

It has the perfect combination of natural elements and year-round fine weather that produce the ideal setting to practise all sports throughout the year. Its mild climate and specific geographical formation encourage both local people and those who visit Madeira to enjoy many outdoor activities. One of the best ways to explore the interior of the island and enjoy the splendour of its landscape is to follow the levadas or footpaths which follow small irrigation canals throughout the hills and forests.

Seaweed extracts from the unpolluted sea water, the 100% pure air and its mild climate, apart from the fact two thirds of its territory is classified as protected forest known as “Laurissilva” which is recognized by the UN as a World Heritage Site, make this enchanted garden the ideal place for a relaxing, revitalizing holiday.

Its capital, Funchal, is situated on the island’s largest bay, and is characterised by its old town where you can visit the lolaurissilva, cal market and buy handicrafts. The embroidery stores and old wine cellars are not to be missed. If you’d like to see the city from a different perspective there are two cable cars, a huge helium balloon and wicker sledges which islanders push downhill from the village of Monte.

Other attractions worth visiting are the Cathedral, the Botanical Garden and many museums.
