Luxury Madeira Holidays

Though Madeira is by far the largest, there is actually a collection of islands located off the northwest coast of Morocco. With everything from mountains to seaside vistas in a relatively small space, Madeira is an ideal destination for visitors who wish to try a variety of activities and explore without spending too much time traveling. The warm, but not hot, year round climate, makes it an attractive location for luxury holidays. The capital, Funchal, is particularly geared toward tourists and every amenity imaginable is available for visitors.

 

Of particular interest are the aqueducts or watercourses known as levadas, which distribute water, mostly rainfall, throughout Madeira. Walking or trekking is a popular activity; the levadas make great paths and provide stunning vistas. One of the smaller islands, Porto Santo, has trekking, horseback riding, snorkelling and sunbathing.

 

Weather

 

Madeira’s constant, moderate climate ranges from approximately 19°C in winter to 25°C in the summer. Rainfall averages less than an inch per month in the summer, rising to four inches during the winter. There is no real rainy period and even in winter there is dry weather and sunshine.

 

Who Goes Here

 

Funchal holds one of the biggest firework displays in the world on New Year’s Eve. It can be seen from several viewpoints at the marina in Funchal or on a cruise ship out on the water. During the rest of the year golfing, sailing and a wide variety of other water activities are popular, as is trekking. Couples, in particular, might enjoy the black sand beach at Prainha.
