Madeira islands

The Madeira archipelago includes Madeira Island, Porto Santo Island, the Desertas Islands and the Savage Islands. Madeira and Porto Santo are inhabited islands that we can explore freely. Desertas and Savages are classified as Nature Reserves and require a special permit. 

Our archipelago is set in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and benefits from a very pleasant climate, both on-land and on the water. Temperatures, over the year, range from 17°C to 25°C while the sea temperature varies between 18°C and 22°C. 

This is why Madeira is known as the Pearl of the Atlantic and the Floating garden of the Atlantic ! A real paradise where you can walk in the mountains or bathe in warm water, at any time of the year.
