Benefit from exclusive advantages in Portugal
>> Madeira

With almost 800 km2 of fascinating natural beauty, cuisine to match and a climate that seems to have been specially commissioned, the Madeira archipelago and its spectacular landscape and a natural heritage distinguished by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage are a heaven of natural beauty. This is an archipelago where two thirds are a protected area and where the largest pre-historic Laurisilva forest (Laurel) in the world is located.Besides its luxurious blue skies and sea and landscapes, Madeira has a variety of rare attractions: the island is famous for Madeira wine, embroidery artisans, wickerwork, “Bolo de mel” (honey cake), tropical fruits, open air activities as golf, running and walking along more than 1,400 km of levadas (irrigation channels), boat rides, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing or jet-skiing… and a springtime temperature, felt all year around.
Beautifully situated and the mains centre of trade and sophisticated life-style, Funchal is the cosmopolitan capital of Madeira with sub tropical vegetation, rich historical heritage and an important port of call for many cruise ships from all over the world. Geographically, Funchal is a beautiful natural “amphitheatre”.
But in the Madeira island there are many other places that deserves to be visited: Caniço, the east coast (Santa Cruz and Machico), the west coast (Câmara de Lobos, Cabo Girão- the highest sea cliff in Europe and the second highest in the world; Ribeira Brava, Ponta do Sol and Calheta), the north coast (Porto Moniz, São Vicente and Santana). 4 km away from Madeira island, you must visit Porto Santo island. Known as “the golden island”, Porto Santo stands out with 9 km o fine, unpolluted sand washed by a clear, calm sea.
