Madeira islands...

A green oasis in the Atlantic next to Marocco, the island of Madeira is blessed with a subtropical climate and boasts lush vegetation, natural swimming pools and ancient forests. The neighboring island of Porto Santo, a short boat ride away, with its long sandy beaches is part of the same archipelago.

Madeira’s agriculture, on volcanic soil, has been heavily influenced by Portugal’s African colonies. The delicious gastronomy includes fresh fish and kebabs, typical bread as well as a variety of locally grown tropical fruit, a typical punch and sweet Madeira wine.
