This tropical treasure is a ‘must-see’ destination with much to explore. Sunbathe on the golden sands of Porto Santo or discover the diverse walking landscapes, as you hike through emerald green mountains at the heart of the island. Visit the famous high cliff of Cabo Girao, Europe’s second highest sea cliff and test your nerve on the glass floored viewing platform high above the sea below. Follow Madeira’s famous levadas to stunning waterfalls and panaromic views of the ‘Pearl of the Atlantic’ and head to the bustling Funchal to uncover the city’s fascinating colonial history. Take some time out to relax with a trip to Blandy’s Winery, home of Madeira wine, where you can enjoy a tipple or two. It would be rude not to!
