The archipelago of Madeira is in the Atlantic Ocean, 978 km southwest from Lisbon, 700 km west from the African coastline and 450 km north from the Canary Islands.
This archipelago is composed of Madeira Island, Porto Santo, Desertas Islands and Selvagens Islands. Of the eight islands, only the biggest two (Madeira and Porto Santo) are inhabited.
In Madeira Island you can: visit the Laurissilva Forest, part of UNESCO World Heritage, gaze at amazing and breathtaking landscapes from various viewpoints and go for a hike in Levadas (irrigation canals that take water from the north to the south of the island) – by doing this you’ll get to know the heart of the island.
In Porto Santo Island you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal, with 9 km wide.
The biggest advantage of the archipelago of Madeira is that you can visit it whenever you want thanks to the average annual temperature, which is very good and oscillates between 25º in the summer and 17º in the winter.
