What’s a holiday in Madeira like?

If you are into sandy beaches with breathtaking views, your next adventure should be a holiday in Madeira, with its rugged coastline and all year round sunny and warm climate.

It gets hot in the midst of Summer with temperatures ranging around the 24C and 25C mark during the day making this a relatively safer temperature range for family holidays (especially those with the younger ones) who may be used to trying to keep the kids out of the 30C-35C temperatures experienced on holidays to Turkey or Greece.

Holiday in Madeira

There is so much to do and see and your holiday in Madeira is made better by the fact that the infrastructure on the island is exceptional, with tarmac roads and an impressive tunnel network, which makes it easy to drive around yourself. There is also a good public transport service, which covers the whole island. 

Funchal is the capital city and sits on the more temperate south coast of the island – ideal for those long-weekend breaks or longer holidays where you can take the time to explore further afield.

Northeast of the island is the best region if you want to explore the island of Madeira on foot. There are numerous interesting small towns and villages that are definitely worth a visit.

On the other hand if you’re looking for something less “active” the Southwest of this island is well-known for its pretty fishing villages and never ending sunsets. It would be so easy to lose a day with your feet up, eating some of the best fresh fish on the whole island, sipping on a cold glass of Poncha (a cocktail of local rum, honey and lemon). A holiday in Madeira really sounds like paradise to me!

There’s lots to do beyond the usual snoozing next to the pool type holiday for the more adventurous and this is where Archipelago Choice really come into our element. Our team of Madeira Holiday Specialists can arrange any of the local activities for you – either as a special day trip during your holiday in Madeira or even build an entire holiday around one or more of the activities for you. This is such a great place as it has the best of both worlds from the inland walks and canyon exploring in the mountains to the fantastic whale watching or swimming with dolphins. Oh and if you’re a keen mountain biker you’ll simply love the trails you’ll hit in Madeira!
