Madeira is a safe haven from modern society and is located within walking distance from most major European cities. The island offers wonderful accommodation and stunning natural sights in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa, an independent region of Portugal.
The coast of the island consists of steep slopes mixed with pure blue maget water, and it also has many attractive sandy beaches.
The capital Funchal is famous for the distinctive architecture and colorful markets of the old town, which includes the historic cathedral with its stone walls and ornate wooden ceiling, and Madeira Botanical Garden which contains thousands of types of plants and exotic trees and the cable car from which to ride to the quiet suburb of Ponte on the hillside.
The city streets are distinguished by the fine art of local artists, which can be seen on the walls and doors in Roa de Santa Maria. The city offers many great activities and fine restaurants that serve the most delicious local dishes.
Despite its small size, the island offers many beautiful places, such as the caves of São Vicente, which were formed from a volcano eruption a million years ago and have many scenic scenes of volcanic eruptions. Porto Moniz Island on the northwestern tip of the island is famous for its natural saltwater baths formed by lava.
It is not to be missed visiting Madera Aquarium and enjoying a diving experience alongside sharks and hundreds of other types of fish, and tourists are trained by experienced instructors. Madeira is an ideal place to experience paragliding over spectacular cliffs and fertile valleys, especially around the region of Maddalena do Mar in the south.
