Top Reasons To Go
Experiencing the old and the new: Madeira retains a traditional feel but has one foot firmly in the 21st century, with cutting-edge museums, beautiful hotels, and some fine modern bars and restaurants.
Experiencing the levadas: There are around 2,000 km (1,240 miles) of levadas, or canals, that allow easy walking access to the island’s jagged mountain peaks and dramatic coastline.
Celebrating at festivals: With spectacular New Year’s Day fireworks displays, an enormous colorful Carnival, and countless local festivities throughout the year, there is always reason to celebrate somewhere on the island.
Enjoying the flora: Madeira’s semitropical climate and rich volcanic soil promote an astonishingly verdant array of flowers, plants, and trees, both in the wild and in some beautifully cultivated gardens.
Taking to the Atlantic: If you aren't tempted to swim in the Gulf Stream-warmed Atlantic waters, head off on a boat for the chance to spot dolphins and whales, as well as enjoy some great game fishing.
