Madeira Island

The archipelago, located in the Atlantic Ocean, about more or less 1000km from mainland Portugal, is composed of the island of Madeira and Porto Santo Island, better known as the Golden Island, by the Deserted Islands Nature Reserve.

It has an amazing climate where temperatures always seem to be spring, dubbed the “Pearl of the Atlantic” or “Garden of the Atlantic.” It is a tourist destination throughout the year. The laurel forest, classified by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage site and one of the 7 Wonders of Portugal, offers unforgettable views, and walking tour on the famous “levadas” and that today is the best way of knowing this island’s natural heritage.
