All about Madeira
Madeira is an archipelago situated in the Atlantic Ocean and is a Portuguese territory. Although most travellers head to the main island of the same name, there is another inhabited isle that is included in this group – Porto Santo – as well as two collections of rock formations nearby.
Funchal is the capital and is an enchanting place to explore, with houses dotted up the mountains that back the settlement and buildings stretching right down to the edge of the sea. The city is renowned for the variety of high-quality restaurants it is home to, so there is nowhere better to sample some of the delicious local cuisine.
The beaches here are predominantly pebble, rather than sand, and they are usually fringed by impressive cliffs, while there are also saltwater swimming pools close to the coast that you can take advantage of. Head to the island's interior, meanwhile, and you'll discover mountains. A popular pastime here is walking along the routes of the levadas – an old irrigation system – from where you'll have amazing views of the isle and can discover some of its flora and fauna.
A host of water sports – including scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing and waterskiing – are on offer around the coast of Madeira, so you can get active in the water as well as on dry land if that's what takes your fancy.
