Madeira – Island of the Eternal Spring

Madeira Island

The never-ending spring island, pearl of the Atlantic, green paradise, and also a special type of delicious wine which is produced, tasted and celebrated here - all these are Madeira.

Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal and lies approximately 980km south of Europe and 580km from Africa on an archipelago of the same name. Its favourable location and the influence of the Gulf Stream make the island a favourite destination for vacation in any season. The temperatures are very pleasant and reach 24°C – 30°C in summer and 15°C – 20°C in winter.

Madeira is justly called the island of eternal spring, as various local kinds of flowers, including orchids, dazzle the visitors at first sight. At the same time, however, Madeira is also a historical destination; the ancient streets of Funchal, the center of tourism on the island, just urge the visitors to travel in history or take romantic walks down the beach colonnade. Local mild subtropical climate enchanted among others the empress Sisi and Winston Churchill, and not many people know that also the last Czech king Charles I. lived here in exile.

Madeira is also an ideal place for active relaxing. The azure sea surrounding the island invites the visitors to try some water sports such as windsurfing, diving, sailing or swimming.

Football enthusiasts have a chance to visit local football stadium where Cristiano Ronaldo, who was born on the island, used to train. Those who love nature and mountains may take hikes along irrigation channels levadas that bring water from mountain slopes down to the valleys.

Also, the island provides ideal conditions for golf enthusiasts all year long. Above the Machico bay, where the Portuguese sailors set foot on the island for the very first time, lies one of the most popular Portuguese golf courses called Santo da Serra. Brilliantly incorporated into the local countryside, it is quite jagged and hilly while still very good for playing. Every year by the end of March the best golf players of the European Golf Tour meet up here to participate in the Madeira Open tournament.

Palheiro Golf Club course spreads high above Funchal. Almost two thirds of the course are located in a pine forest and the rest looks like a part of a tropical botanical garden more than one hundred years old. From several holes there is a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside, Funchal, and the seaside.

Thanks to the mountainous inland part Madeira looks like a wild island. Despite its exotic features and raw beauty of nature it is a cultivated island with an elaborate infrastructure, professional services and medical care on a very high level.

Beautiful green mountains, seaside towns, breath-taking views of the azure ocean, cellars full of wines taken care of by many generations, cuisine offering all kinds of fish and seafood, pleasant breeze and warm sunshine – all these are waiting for new travelers who discover this civilized paradise.
