But beyond amazing cuisine, Madeira is also the perfect setting to escape from your everyday life and reconnect with nature, or simply just relax and unwind in a tropical paradise that will make you feel like you are a world away from it all. Boasting mild weather and equally mild ocean temperatures year-round, Madeira offers an endless array of activities for you to discover the island’s stunning natural beauty by land or by sea, including biking, hiking, kayaking, sail boating, jet-skiing, surfing, scuba diving, and much more.
With its exquisite landscapes, delicious cuisine, distinctive culture and traditions, and endless opportunities for adventure, it's easy to see why this dreamy island was elected "World's Leading Island Destination" from 2015 to 2021 by the World Travel Awards.
But back to the food… Want even more sweet and savory staples you can look forward to indulging in while staying in Madeira? How about locally grown bananas that are smaller, but oh so much sweeter than your usual suspects? Or how about Bolo de Caco, a soft traditional bread cooked on a stone slab, a sugarcane honey cake known as Bolo de Mel, molasses cookies called Broas de Mel that will knock your socks off, and a traditional glass of Poncha or world-famous Madeira wine to wash it all down? All of these delicious culinary options - and exciting activities - await you in Madeira.
