The Portuguese island of Madeira is a hidden gem of a holiday destination. Closer to Africa than it is to Europe, and with an idyllic year-round climate and thousands of hours of sunshine, Madeira has beautiful beaches and fantastic natural beauty to explore.
Holidays to Madeira bring you an exciting blend of historic culture, architecture, fantastic cuisine and natural beauty, something of which the inhabitants of Madeira are very proud. Known as 'The Garden Island', visitors can explore several exquisitely cultivated gardens, such as the The Quinta do Palheiro Ferreiro Park, cultivated in British colonial style, and the Madeira Botanical Gardens, a hillside garden that features more than 2000 plants, along with an amazing view of Funchal. The gardens are also home to flocks of parakeets and parrots. If you enjoy wild nature, you might also consider exploring Laurisilva forest, a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site, in the centre of Madeira Island, and plenty of hiking and cycling paths to get you in and amongst this natural beauty.
For those of you looking for a beach, the Madeira Island has great beaches and fantastic water sports to offer, alongside busy resorts with bars and nightclubs. For more beautiful beaches, head to Porto Santo island, the smaller of the two populated islands of the Madeira archipelago.
Book flights to Madeira from Birmingham and London Gatwick airports. There are plenty of 2018 flights available to help you get the most out of any holiday here so that you can enjoy this year-round destination.
