The 8 must-see places for your end-of-summer visit to Madeira


The island of Madeira, also known as the "Pearl of the Atlantic", is part of the archipelago with the same name, located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 1000 km from continental Portugal.

The temperature in Madeira throughout the year is always mild and with little rain. The island is also famous for its calm waters and incomparable plant life, with some of the most beautiful gardens and landscapes in Portugal and the world.

 

To visit Madeira Island is to experience one of the most incredible places in Portugal, where there is always a diverse range of activities on offer that will make your stay simply fantastic. Below we make some suggestions for you to enjoy in the near future.

1. An inescapable figure when talking about Madeira, Cristiano Ronaldo has opened his CR7 Museum, where you can admire the trophies won by the best football player in the world and learn a bit more about his journey and his fantastic career.

2. If you enjoy a good walk through green trails and breathtaking landscapes, don’t miss "Laurissilva da Madeira". Classified as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, this forest formation on Madeira Island contains flora and fauna that will captivate you.

3. Another place to visit, preferably with a camera to record every unbelievable moment and landscape, is "Levada de Fajã da Ama", a 3.9 km hiking trail full of tunnels and waterfalls that make this an unforgettable journe

y.

4. If you’re not afraid of heights, you have to climb to "Pico do Areeiro", the third highest peak on Madeira Island, at 1818 metres. With breathtaking views overlooking the sea and the mountains, on a clear day you can even see the neighbouring island of Porto Santo.

5. The Madeira Nature Festival, which runs from October 6 to 11, provides tourist entertainment and offers activities that help visitors discover Madeira’s vast and rich natural heritage. Admission to the event is free.

6. If you enjoy a good wine, then don’t miss the "Essência do Vinho - Madeira" event between November 27 and 29, where the top wine producers will be waiting for you to try the best the region has to offer.

7. Watching, in their natural habitat, the dolphins and whales that live in the waters surrounding the island, is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Coasting along the water in small boats enables you to interact with these amazing animals.

8. Because Madeira is also made from tradition, visit the famous "Casinhas de Santana", traditional triangle-shaped houses with thatched roofs, which are part of the island’s tourist image.

For all of these reasons and many others that await your discovery, your passage through Madeira Island promises to be unforgettable.
