Destination Guides - Madeira



Madeira holidays take you to a truly beautiful Portuguese island located in the Atlantic off the coast of North Africa. Volcanic in origin, Madeira lies in the gulf stream which gives it a very pleasant subtropical climate with no extremes of heat or cold. Being mountainous, steep cliffs rise out of the ocean. The few beaches that exist are all manmade. The hills beyond the towns and villages are terraced giving fantastic displays of vegetation. Springtime with blossoms and flowers create wonderful displays in this stunning landscape. Cheap Madeira holidays attract both those looking for relaxation under sunny skies as well as those seeking an active break. They are particularly popular with walkers. The island has a series of irrigation channels called levadas and these are used as walking trails giving access to fantastic scenery. Towns with their colonial architecture and pretty parks are very attractive as well as being strikingly clean.
