Madeira Travel Guide
Why? Although a holiday in Madeira, the
beautiful Portuguese island in the Atlantic, is designed for fun in
the sun, there are actually no beaches. This is made up for by all
the stunning resorts, which sport their own swimming pools, and the
fact that the island is wonderful for walking through the verdant
beauty of its landscape.
When? Most choose to holiday in Madeira during the summer months (between July and October) when the weather is mainly sunny and hot, but seldom stifling. Locals, however, advise that you can travel to Madeira any time of year and enjoy perfect weather because there is little temperature variation between winter and summer. As evidenced by its greenery, though, the island does tend to have an abundance of rain, but when it rains on one part, it is usually possible to find a dry spot elsewhere on the island.
Who for? Whatever you look for in a holiday, travel to Madeira to find it. Young and old have a wide variety of activities to indulge in, from scuba diving to cable car rides or thrills and spills in the theme park. Those who enjoy walking are especially drawn to holiday in Madeira and follow the famed 'levada' (canal) trails across this paradise island.
