Madeira Beach Holidays

It’s easy to see why Madeira is one of the most sought after holiday destinations in Europe. Not only is it breathtakingly beautiful and warm with a subtropical climate, but it’s also renowned for producing an abundance of fantastic food and wine. The main island of Madeira is green and rugged with volcanoes, high cliffs and plenty of pebbly beaches to explore.

Funchal, the capital of the Madeira, was declared a city in the 1500s and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to ‘white gold’; the Madeiran sugar. Today Madeira is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker’s Market, Blandy’s Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. One of the most popular sights on the island is the Funchal Botanical Gardens. Friendly locals, clear, flat streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around and a fantastic getaway.

You can’t think of Madeira without being reminded of the mountain ridge that passes directly through the centre of the island. Monte is the mountain that is most accessible from Funchal; a cable car can take you to the very top, from the botanical gardens, to look over the beautiful island. If you’re more adventurous, there’s also the traditional toboggan run, consisting of a two-kilometre ride down a hillside in a wicker basket - a must for the brave.
