An adventure you won't forget
In the heart of the Atlantic, the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo are a natural paradise. The blue of the sea and the emerald green of the vegetation stand out against the exotic tone of the flowers, in an archipelago where two thirds of the land is a protected area and home to the largest laurel forest in the world.
The year-round spring-like temperature is a great incentive for outdoor activities. You can go hiking along the network of "levada" paths (small irrigation canals carved into the rock), visit the city of Funchal on foot and discover the heritage of the Great Discoveries, or you can roam the island freely. Boat trips are an excellent way to see the coastline from a different perspective.
In a naturally welcoming atmosphere, balance and well-being are commonplace. Madeira offers various beach resorts and access to the sea, with good conditions for boating and diving. Sea, land and air activities are available all year around.
In Calheta, you'll find paragliding, whale and dolphin watching, fishing cruises, sand beaches, various sports activities, trekking, mountain biking, and so much more...
The festivities that take place throughout the year are good opportunities to taste the traditional flavors of gastronomy and see Madeira in celebration, including the Carnival parades, the Flower Festival, the Atlantic Festival and especially the New Year's fireworks.
